Pasta with Mushrooms and Leeks Recipe
  • Put 2 - 3 quarts water and 1 tablespoon salt in a large pot and heat.
  • Trim and wash leek: cut off dark green top, leaving white and light green parts. Slice in half lengthwise, wash under running water, and chop finely. Slice the mushrooms ( drain, if using canned).
  • Heat oil and butter in skillet. Add leeks and mushrooms, cooking until leeks are tender, 5 - 8 minutes. Add wine or water, stirring to scrape up any browned bits, and continue cooking until  most of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Meanwhile, add spaghetti to boiling water and cook according to package directions.
  • While spaghetti cooks, mix together eggs, Half and Half, salt, pepper, nutmeg (if using) and cheese.
  • When spaghetti is just barely done, drain and add to leeks. Stir to mix well. Add egg mixture and cook, stirring, until eggs are cooked, about 2 minutes.
  • Serve immediately, sprinkled with parsley, if using,
