  • Don’t wash the mushrooms. Clean the mushrooms with a damp towel. Do not rinse under water. Otherwise, the fungus will absorb the water and become spongy.
  • Stir occasionally to prevent the pasta from sticking to the bottom of the pan.
  • Slice all vegetables into equal size. This makes it easier to cook vegetables.
  • Don’t cook mushrooms with sauce. When the mushrooms turn golden, remove them from the pan and do not continue cooking with the sauce or the mushrooms will lose color, flavor and texture.
  • Add salt and pepper while the mushrooms are cooking. In this way, you can prevent the mushrooms from darkening.
