Ingredients
  • Kosher salt
  • 1 pound whole-grain or whole wheat spaghetti
  • 1 cup grated Pecorino Romano
  • 1/4 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 pound Brussels sprouts, trimmed, halved and thinly sliced
  • 1 medium onion, finely chopped
  • 1 pound mushrooms, such as cremini, button or shiitake, cleaned and chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3 teaspoons kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1 cup creme fraiche, at room temperature (about 8 ounces)
  • 1/2 cup vegetable broth
  • 2 tablespoons fresh lemon juice (from 1/2 large lemon)
  • Zest of 1 large lemon
  • 1/2 cup slivered almonds, toasted*
Directions

*Cook's Note: To toast the almonds, arrange in a single layer on a baking sheet. Bake in a preheated 350 degrees F oven until lightly toasted, 8 to 10 minutes. Cool completely before using.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Add the pasta and cook until tender but still firm to the bite, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain and place in a large serving bowl. Toss with 1/2 cup cheese.

In a large skillet, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the Brussels sprouts, onions, mushrooms, garlic, 1 teaspoon salt and 1/2 teaspoon pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the onions are soft, 6 to 8 minutes. Add the creme fraiche, vegetable broth, lemon juice and lemon zest. Bring to a simmer and stir until the mixture forms a creamy sauce, about 2 minutes. Stir in 2 teaspoons salt and 1 teaspoon pepper.

Pour the sauce over the pasta, add the almonds and toss until coated. Sprinkle with the remaining cheese and serve.
