1. To make the parmesan spinach mushroom pasta skillet: Cook the pasta in salted water until al dente, according to the package instructions.

2. Heat 2 tablespoons of olive oil in a large skillet. Add the mushrooms and sauté for about 3 minutes until lightly browned.

3. Add the chopped garlic and cook for about 30 seconds longer. Then deglaze with a bit of vegetable broth. Reduce the heat and cook for about 1-2 minutes longer. Remove mushrooms to a plate and set aside.

4. In the same skillet, add the spinach and cook for 2 minutes until wilted. Adjust seasoning with salt and pepper.

5. Once the pasta is ready, pour off the cooking water. Push spinach on the side in the skillet and add mushroom back, then put drained pasta in the pan and toss to combine. Add parmesan, the last tablespoon of olive oil, and Italian seasoning, and give a quick stir. Serve the parmesan spinach mushroom pasta with red chili pepper flakes and more parmesan, if you like. Enjoy!

Tip for the Parmesan Spinach Mushroom Pasta Skillet recipe

If you enjoy meatless pasta recipes with lots of flavors, this spinach mushroom pasta recipe is perfect for you! The recipe uses simple, easy-to-find ingredients and everything you use in this pasta recipe can be found in most grocery stores. Here are a few tips to make the best pasta recipe ever:

  • Use good quality olive oil because it adds a lot to the flavor of this pasta dish.
  • If you don’t farfalle, use pasta that holds the sauce well, such as penne or rotini.
  • You can use different mushrooms to vary the taste: shiitake, portobello, cremini…
  • To turn this pasta recipe gluten-free, use gluten-free pasta. Gluten-free brown rice farfalle will work great!

What can we substitute for spinach?

You can either leave the spinach out or try this pasta recipe with chopped kale. You’ll just need to sauté the kale bit longer than spinach to soften it.

Can we freeze this spinach mushroom pasta?

We don’t suggest freezing this pasta dish. The sauce will get absorbed into the pasta, leaving it dry. If you reheat refrigerated leftovers, you may want to add a little olive oil to compensate for what has been absorbed into the pasta while sitting in the refrigerator.

“Absolutely delicious!!! Can’t wait to make this again!” – Larissa

“Great pasta recipe, altered it a bit by adding about a 1/4 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup asiago which gave it a richer creamier taste.” – Sean

“Really good. I love dishes that are adaptable. I kept to the recipe this time but if I fancied a meat night I love the idea that I could add sausage, chicken or even pancetta 😋” – Daisy

    Haven’t made it yet, but am looking forward to it. Was looking for a recipe to use up extra mushrooms, parm, and spinach and this beauty popped up.

  • Emily

    Simple and delicious. I only had plain white mushrooms and it was still wonderful.

    This is a lovely dish... I started with 1 tsp of butter in my pan and fried brown mushrooms just for a couple of minutes. Then add a quarter of a small onion diced and fried all until the onions are translucent. I used chicken stock and then at the end used my noodle water to add more water to steam the spinach down. Be careful I did this is two batches and they got over done. I loved it but my husband said it reminded him of his mother's spinach. Oooops. LOL.. I used a tiny pinch of Cayenne Pepper instead of the red pepper flakes. I didn't have time to order a rotisserie chicken or make any tenderloin so I added a can of chicken. This would have gone really well with Italian sausage I think. May try that sometime. All in all.. easy. Pretty fast. Also, you can add just about anything to it. Oh also I added cream like someone above said to do. About 1/4 cup or less. Everyone loved it!

    Very quick, easy, and delicious meal to make- good for meal prep for a busy work week! I added chicken for an extra source of protein.

    A quick, healthy, and flavorful dish! I added a fresh tomato for a bit of color.

  • Katherine

    This is easy/breezy and sooo delicious....we've made several times. A toss salad and dinner rolls make perfect sides.

  • Deetz

    2023-06-01 21:34:06

    Delicious. I love that it doesn't need any cream, ect. Full of flavor. I'll follow and try more of your recipes. Thanks 👍

  • Joyce

    I was very pleased with this recipe. It was delicious!

  • Margo

    2023-05-11 09:38:51

    This was easy and fun to make! I noticed it lacked a little flavor with just using the seasonings listed. I added 1/3 stick of butter for more creaminess and it was perfect. I also added fresh shredded Parm right into the skillet.

  • Leilani

    2023-04-28 22:30:57

    Made it exactly as stated the first time. Several variations of it since. The flavors are so good.

  • Anne

    Delicious recipe! Made for my vegetarian daughter and it was a big hit. Followed the recipe exactly so this is an authentic review of recipe given without any tweaks, add one, or changes

    A nice recipe! I added about 6 oz of spinach, instead of the 10, which to me seemed a bit overwhelming. I sautéed the mushrooms in butter for for flavor, then added the garlic to that. I drained the juice (from the shrooms) and used it to cook the spinach. Then drained juice before mixing together. I also added about 1 cup Parmesan cheese.

    This was very good, especially when I added some white wine to it!

  • Tee

    2022-04-11 20:38:42

    @Brenda, I added the remaining vegetable broth to cook the spinach.

  • Tee

    2022-04-11 20:36:30

    It was ok. Definitely need to add more seasoning and either heavy cream or sour cream if you want it creamy.

  • Amy

    2022-04-07 17:43:57

    This was really good! I did add chicken & about 1/2 cup of cream.

  • Laura

    2022-03-12 18:25:59

    This was quite tasty. I did add some sausage to it to make it more of a main dish, but stuck to the original recipe otherwise. It called for 3 cloves of garlic……… whoa!!! Way too much ( and we are garlic lovers!) Next time, we will cut way di n on that! Other than that it was delicious! ( pass the Tums !!)

  • Brenda

    2022-03-01 04:43:36

    Instructions call for 1/2 cup vegetable broth. Instructions in step 3 says to add a BIT of vegetable broth. Where do you add the rest of the vegetable broth?

  • Paula Ski

    2022-02-26 15:28:10

    So easy to make and tastes is very good. Recipe doesn’t need expensive ingredients and most likely you already have everything right in your cupboard. I did find it’s best to eat it immediately because the pasta gets dry quickly. To compensate I just added a little olive oil and tossed. If there are meat eaters in the family add sliced chicken breast.

    I feel like this is super easy and not spicy at all. Not sure what Liz is complaining about. Great recipe! This is on our weekly rotation.

  • Liz

    2022-01-12 23:26:35

    Too many steps, and too spicy. I normally just sautée assorted veggies with garlic in olive oil. Then I just add in the pasta and hit it with a little olive oil. Simple and easier than this. Also, there is another recipe on this site with onions and heavy cream, but otherwise identical. Huh?

  • Julie

    2022-01-01 16:49:49

    This came out perfect, everyone loved it!

  • Loura

    2021-08-14 09:12:16

    It looked pretty and was easy to prepare but it was bland. Didn’t knock me off my feet.

  • Tracy

    2021-05-31 19:55:33

    DELICIOUS! I had an onion that I needed to use, so I diced that up and cooked it with the mushrooms. I added a little white wine to the mushrooms, as well. I wanted it a bit thicker, so I used some heavy cream as well.

  • Terry

    2021-05-03 17:32:44

    Very good i used vegetable linguini and. Chicken broth. So so good

  • Fran

    2021-04-24 18:49:46

    Added some chicken sausage this time. Also added cooking Sherry for more flavor. Was delicious

  • Lisa

    2021-03-31 16:59:15

    Was pretty good! Will add this to my usual meals

  • Pam

    Added some shrimp this dish was Absolutely delicious!!!

  • Fran

    2021-02-17 19:43:40

    I added onion and chopped asparagus ,a bit of wine to the mushrooms. It was delicious.

  • Kim

    2021-02-16 19:44:06

    This was delicious! I looked thru the comments of others & added in 1/2 cup of milk to my pasta to make it more saucey! I also added tomatoes, onions, & crisped tofu!!

  • Elaine

    2021-02-08 22:31:51

    A keeper, hubby & I loved this dish! I tweaked it a bit as I added more mushrooms and I added a heaping TBSP of Better Than Bouillon paste to 1/2 C. of hot water. I would add more spinach (roughly cut in half) and maybe sliced up yellow pepper next time.

  • Robbib

    2021-02-08 04:51:53

    This was alright. I followed the recipe exactly, but the spinach isn't enough to go up against so much pasta. You end up with a lot of just pasta bites. I'm adding some roasted red peppers, truffle oil, and more spices.

  • Patti Lacey

    2021-01-24 12:49:16

    This had great flavor and nutrition!

  • Jeani

    2021-01-21 19:48:56

    Thank you for sharing this recipe! I added a few items, for some extra flavor and umpffff..... 1. I added diced onion and sautéed with the mushrooms for extra flavor. 2. I also reserved and added some of the pasta water about 1/2 cup to provide a little more sauce with the Parmesan. 3. I also added about 1/4 - 1/2 cup of cream to give the pasta some richness. Needless to say my “meat eating” husband loved it, and so did I! This will become a regular weekly recipe in our home! Thanks for sharing!!

  • Adrienne

    2021-01-18 22:52:38

    The recipe was okay, tastes good with a balsamic vinaigrette but without the additional dressing it's pretty bland

  • Calie

    2021-01-18 20:58:14

    Good recipe! Super easy! Added zucchini and onion and half a block of reduced fat cream cheese! Made it super creamy!!!
