Walnut and mushroom pasta

Eating walnuts regularly offers plenty of health benefits. Instead of munching on a dry handful, why not make this walnut and mushroom pasta for dinner?

Serves 2

Cooking Time 15min


  • 120g rigatoni or penne
  • 1tsp olive oil
  • 200g mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 red onion, thinly sliced

  • 150g spinach
  • 1–2tsp dijon mustard, to taste
  • 80ml single soya cream alternative


  1. Cook the pasta according to the pack instructions.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large frying pan, then add the mushrooms and fry for 3 min, stirring. Add the red onion and cook for a further 3 min. Stir in the garlic and walnuts, season with lots of black pepper and cook for a further 2 min.
