  4. Add the broth and bring to a simmer.

Recipe Notes

  • Optional Variation: Add a couple of tablespoons of chopped fresh herbs, such as chives, tarragon, thyme, or parsley, to the spaghetti along with the parmesan.
  • Wine Recommendation: The mix of flavors opens the door to all sorts of wine choices. To match the earthiness of the mushrooms, try a white based on the chardonnay grape; a Bourgogne Blanc from France would be particularly good. To echo the black pepper, look for a red with a similar flavor, such as a dolcetto from Italy or a petite sirah from California.
