Wild Mushroom Spaghetti with Orange Brown Butter + Giveaway!

Wild Mushroom Spaghetti with Orange Brown Butter + Crispy Sage

I just got back from Atlanta where I spent my Saturday at Create + Cultivate speaking on a panel about food in the digital space with some women I admire a whole lot.

It sounds a lil’ cheesy but I left Saturday feeling so ridiculously inspired and really excited to try harder, try new things and all at the same time super grateful for everything. I also realized that while I love men, my favorite is women company. I work with mainly women, most of my friends are women and I really like it that way.

Wild Mushroom Spaghetti with Orange Brown Butter + Crispy Sage

When I got back last night from traveling—which actually was pretty easy–all I wanted was a big bowl of autumn-like comfort. I didn’t have this in front of me because of course I made this a week ago, but I wanted it to be!

Wild Mushroom Spaghetti with Orange Brown Butter + Crispy Sage

This pasta is Eat In My Kitchen. This pasta is so simple to make. And orange and brown butter is one of my favorite flavor combinations yet I had never had it in a savory capacity but it is SO GOOD. And I’m definitely going to try it again some other way (just not sure how). This book is so pretty.

Wild Mushroom Spaghetti with Orange Brown Butter + Crispy Sage

The wild mushrooms—if you can’t find oysters and chanterelles—can easily be replaced with trusty creminis or button mushrooms.

I also want to put crispy sage on every single thing right now. I kinda even want to put sage in sweet stuff. But that might be a little too weird. Maybe I’ll try it this week and you should try this.


This Lagostina Copper Pasta Pot is so beautiful and it could be yours!

Win by leaving a comment below by telling me what your favorite fall meal is?! I need some inspiration! Giveaway ends on Wednesday, October 19th at midnight. (Giveaway is open to U.S. winners only.)

Wild Mushroom Spaghetti with Orange Brown Butter + Crispy Sage

Wild Mushroom Spaghetti with Orange Butter + Crispy Sage

Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 15 minutes
Total Time: 25 minutes
Serving Size: 2


  • 7 ounces dried spaghetti
  • Olive oil
  • Unsalted butter
  • 4 ounces chantrelles, cut in half lengthwise
  • 4 ounces king oyster mushrooms, cut into 1/2-inch pieces
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground pepper
  • 15 fresh sage leaves
  • 5 tablespoons freshly squeezed orange juice, from about 1 orange
  • Freshly grated orange zest, from 1 orange


  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil and cook the spaghetti, according to the package instructions, until al dente. Drain the spaghetti and drizzle a teaspoon of olive oil atop; toss the pasta (this will help it from sticking) and set aside.
  • In a large pan, heat 3 tablespoons of butter over high heat. Add the mushrooms and sauté, stirring constantly, for 3 to 5 minutes or until al dente and golden. Season to taste with salt and a few turns of freshly ground pepper and then transfer to a medium bowl.
  • Place the pan over medium-high heat, add 2 tablespoons of butter, and fry the sage for about 30 seconds or until crisp and golden but not dark. Transfer the sage to a plate. Add the orange juice and deglaze the pan, using a spatula to scrape any bits and pieces off the bottom. Add the pasta and mushrooms to the pan, stir to combine, and season to taste with salt, pepper, and orange zest. Sprinkle with grated Parmesan-Reggiano, crispy sage and serve immediately.

These three dishes make our family favorite Fall meal.

    Fall is comfort food season, even more so than winter. I find myself eating a lot of the first foods I ever learned how to make. My favorite fall meal is short pasta (ditalini is best) with a clove of garlic, chopped tomatoes, olive oil, salt, and pasta water. If I’m feeling spendy, I’ll pick up a ball of good mozzarella to dice and mix in. I always make it way too salty, but that’s why it always tastes the same way it did when I was ten. And that’s kind of the point, isn’t it?

    My favorite fall meal is… butternut squash anything. Pumpkin gets all the hype, but butternut squash is where it’s at. I think it’s more versatile too. My fiancé makes this curry butternut squash soup with Gouda grilled cheeses and it’s to die for. I dream about it and get so psyched for cool weather so I can beg him to make it. He also makes some amazing butternut squash gnocchi which is why I need to win him this pot for his birthday at the end of the month.

    My favorite fall meal would have to be chicken parm. A few weeks ago I found myself looking into the pantry trying to decide what I could make with the ingredients I had lying around, turns out I had everything I needed to make chicken Parmesan! I’ve made it once a week since then 🙂

  • Reply Emily October 17, 2016 at 8:18 pm

    That pasta looks incredible! We always reach for lemons to wake up a dish, so it’s nice to see the orange get its moment in the sun. I can’t wait to try it in my own kitchen.
    Fall and winter are definitely my favorite seasons and all year round I crave temperatures that mandate I spend my day bundled up in a blanket. The same goes for my food. I love to roast any and all fall produce (brussels sprouts, squash, turnips, oh my!) and then bundle it up in some pie crust with cheese and herbs to make the ultimate breakfast, lunch, or dinner. I think it goes without saying that these choose your own adventure savory galettes are best enjoyed wrapped in a big blanket on the sofa.

    Such a beautiful pot and mouth watering recipe! My favorite autumnal recipe would probably be butternut squash ravioli in a sage and cream sauce.

    My fav fall meal is Swedish meatballs over buttered egg noodles. Sticks to your ribs goodness! It’ll warm your kitchen right up and take away the chills. Happy Fall!

    I do a lot of braising and slow roasting in the fall — braised pork shoulder with sage and fennel served over creamy polenta, yes please!

    Thank you for sharing your beautiful and delicious cooking with all of us!

    We love doing Italian beef in the crockpot! You can do so much with it…plain with potatoes, on a sandwich, pizza, etc…so easy!

    My absolute favorite fall meal is chili. Nothing says Autumn like a big bowl of warm, spicy chili.

    love all the winter squashes! especially roasted delicata and butternut 🙂 and brussels sprouts of course!

  • Reply Harley Bartles October 18, 2016 at 5:51 am

    This looks delish — I’ll have to add it to our meal plan for next week! 🙂
    Favorite fall dishes in our home are always soups! Especially now that the winter squashes and potatoes are available at our local co-op. We experiment and I don’t think ever make the same soup twice, but the ingredient list always has caramelized onions (+ leeks, our favorite!), celery, carrots, enough broth to make sure you have leftovers, some kind of grain (rice, quinoa, barley), and then either beans, lentils, or chicken. Depending on what looks good at the store, we’ll add in some cubed squash, potatoes, turnips, rutabaga, mushrooms, and even some greens right at the end. To flavor the broth we usually use a combo of lemon (zest + juice), ginger, or apple cider vinegar. And of course, lots of garlic. Serve it with warm bread and it is the most comforting (and healthy) meal. 🙂

    My favorite autumn meal is balsamic roasted brussels sprouts on top of cheesy grits. It also works well with mushrooms mixed in. So hearty and warming.

    My favorite fall meal is pizza with bacon or sausage, butternut squash, and kale. No sauce, just really good mozzarella cheese. It’s such a warm, comforting indulgence!

    Our favorite fall meal is chicken sausage mixed up in a pan with tomatoes and whatever veggies we have in the fridge – asparagus or broccoli- with a wine sauce, served over homemade pasta. It’s soooo good and manages to taste different every time. Last week we had it with roasted delicata and acorn squash. Yummmm!

    Yum, fall. My fav meal this time of year is chicken pot pie. After surviving the extended So Cal summer, nothing says comfort to me like whipping them up and enjoying them piping hot from the oven, especially when the oven has been off since May!

  • Reply Leda October 18, 2016 at 4:47 pm

    Fall is my favorite season- you still have lots of fresh options at the farmers markets and with the cooler weather I can use the oven more freely! I always look forward to baking again and making hearty stews. One of my favorite fall dishes is a farrotto. I roast butternut squash and toss that with farro, chiffonades of tuscan kale and a generous grating of parmesan.

    Mushrooms and pasta and sage? oh my! Sounds downright delicious. My favorite fall meal is lots of them–pot roast with potatoes and carrots, or chili, or spaghetti with meat sauce, or roasted chicken legs with sweet potatoes and red peppers on a sheet pan, or drunken chicken (chicken soaked in brandy with garlic, onion and tomatoes and allspice served over polenta. I could go on and on. In fact that pot would be perfect for the drunken chicken!

    My favorite fall meal i think changes each year but this year I’ve been obsessed with soups! I’ve made a variety of vegetable barley soups and the classic chicken noodle so many times already! But hands down my fav soup so far was the Dominican sancocho my grandmother made a couple of weeks ago. So warm and comforting nothing beats a bowl of soup on a chilly fall day!

  • Reply Caroline October 19, 2016 at 9:22 am

    What a beautiful pot? The meal that says fall to me is usually a good stew or chili. The most recent stew I had that was delicious was an italian sausage and sweet potato stew. So comforting and warm!!

  • Reply Tyler Tierney October 19, 2016 at 9:51 am

    My favorite fall meal is a butternut squash and kale risotto. It seems like a standard fall risotto, but the bitterness of the kale brightens and lightens the dish just enough. It’s the perfect warm, fall comfort meal.
    Though, I’m thinking your dish may just replace it. Cannot wait to try and make it this week.
    Hope this piece comes my way! It’s the piece I’ve been looking to add to my kitchen. Plus, the last day of your competition just so happens to fall on my birthday!

  • Reply Cindy McL October 19, 2016 at 10:17 am

    Right now I’m in a rut too. I’m making Shutterbean’s Stracciatella soup- it’s warming and has some green to it, and I bet you have everything you need to make it already. I love having that with a grilled cheese on the side to dip into the broth. Hopefully I find something else soon to mix into my usual rotation, but for now it works!

  • Reply Andrea October 19, 2016 at 10:25 am

    Roasted root vegetables are always an easy go to. But if I had to pick a favorite, it’d be my grandmothers butternut squash soup (whom I’m visiting in a week and will get to gobble up soon! yay!) A close second is a fellow food bloggers recipe for Butternut Squash Mac & Cheese… who doesn’t love the sound of that combo? 🙂

  • Reply Brooke October 19, 2016 at 12:50 pm

    I am loving soup right now! I’ve already made 2 batches this Fall of Ina Garten’s roasted potato leek soup with the crispy shallots (HAVE to have those on top!).

    And wow! That pot is beautiful! It would match my copper Kichen Aid very nicely 🙂

    My favorite fall meal would have to be a big, steaming bowl of chili with delicious cornbread fresh from the oven! And of course, some sort of pie for dessert (with ice cream!) My husband would love this pasta dish, so I’m definitely planning on making it this month! Thanks!
