  • ½ cup mushrooms I used bella and button
  • ½ cup spinach
  • ½ stick butter for sauce
  • 2 tbsp butter for veggies
  • 1 cup garlic
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 8 oz gruyere
  • 1 cup parmesan cheese
  • 1 tbsp refrigerated squeeze basil
  • Palmini noodles 2 containers or 6 servings


  • Sauté mushrooms and spinach in 2 Tbsp butter until just about done (leave a little bit of cook time); set aside.
  • Sauté butter and garlic over medium-high heat.
  • Add heavy cream.
  • Slowly stir in cheeses in small batches.
  • Once all of the cheese has been incorporated, turn off the heat.
  • Add in palmini noodles, mushrooms, and spinach.
  • Stir until sauce covers all “noodles.”
  • Enjoy!


Chef Note: To cut down on some of the “crispness” of the palmini noodles and allow them to take on a more traditional spaghetti mouth-feel, you can soak them in milk prior to cooking them.
 Chef Note: I sometimes also add a few pats of cream cheese to this recipe as I have found it gives it a creamier texture.
 Chef Note: You could add any vegetables you like to this—broccoli is another one of my favorites.
