Fantastic fusilli for a simple yet delicious lunch
Add the pasta to a large pan of salted, boiling water.
Meanwhile, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large frying pan. Add all the mushrooms and cook over a high heat, stirring often, for 2 minutes. Stir 1 crushed garlic clove in and cook for 2 minutes more. Transfer to a mixing bowl, season well and stir in the butter and half the parsley.
Return the pan to a medium heat. Add the remaining tablespoon olive oil and the remaining garlic clove and cook for 30 seconds then add the almonds and remaining parsley. Cook for a minute or two, stirring until the almonds begin to toast. Remove from the heat.
Drain the pasta, reserving a few tablespoons of the cooking water. Tip the pasta back into the pan with the cooked mushrooms and the reserved pasta cooking water and combine. Stir the Parmesan into the almond mixture and spoon over the pasta.
