Expert Tips

  • Make sure the pasta is cooked al dente. When cooked al dente, pasta is easier to digest. 
  • When cooking the beef and mushrooms, cook in batches if your skillet is not big enough. It’s important not to overcrowd the skillet.
  • Substitute the mushrooms for other vegetables that pair well with beef and spaghetti. Fresh tomatoes, zucchini, or just plain with red onions on the side make unique pasta dishes.
