We made this for the Golden Globes and both loved it. DELISH!


  • 1 lb pasta
  • 1 cup creme fraiche or sour cream
  • 3 lemons, juiced and zested
  • 10 oz spinach
  • 2 containers mushrooms
  • parmesan cheese to taste


Stir fry mushrooms in a bit of oil and wine or vinegar until cooked fully. Set aside. Cook pasta until al dente. Meanwhile, stir in lemon juice and zest into creme fraiche (sour cream would work) and set aside. When pasta is done, reserve 1/2 cup cooking liquid and drain. Return pasta to pot. Add lemon mixture, spinach, parmesan, and mushrooms. Combine, whisking in reserved liquid if necessary. Season with salt and pepper to taste, top with parmesan.
