Few weeknight meals are as quick and easy as pasta, but if you find yourself falling into a pasta rut, look to the season for inspiration. In this dish, mushrooms, sage, and walnuts turn ordinary spaghetti into the perfect fall meal. The mix is filling, flavorful, and a welcome diversion from traditional sauce.
A fall salad like Chicory with Walnuts and Parmesan makes a nice start to the meal.

Not enough protein for a main dish.
Delicious! Came together quick and easy. Made sauteed garlic spinach on the side and also added chopped garlic to the sautees mushrooms. Yum!
Second time of making it - we obtained enough sage this time (home grown). We added one clove of garlic crushed to the cooking mushrooms which we think enhanced the dish. Do toast the walnuts adequately - 5 mins at 190c was not quite enough and adding a cup of the pasta water was really worth while (we did not do the first time round.) Although it looks a little unhealthy because of the butter and Parmesan these are not now thought to be bad for you even in these quantities. This is a delicious recipe - try it!
