  • 8 oz (about 225g) pasta (such as linguine, fettuccine, or your favorite)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped

  • 2 tablespoons nutritional yeast
  • 1 teaspoon lemon zest

  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • Fresh parsley or basil for garnish (optional)


  1. Cook the Pasta:

    • Cook the pasta according to the package instructions until it's al dente. Drain and set it aside.
  2. Sauté the Lion's Mane Mushrooms:

    • Add the Lion's Mane mushroom strips and sauté for about 5-7 minutes, or until they are golden brown and slightly crispy.

  3. Prepare the Sauce:

    • In the same skillet, add the remaining 1 tablespoon of olive oil and heat over medium heat.
    • Add the chopped onion and garlic, and sauté for about 3-4 minutes until they become translucent and fragrant.
