  1. Place a large frying pan on medium high heat with 1 tablespoon olive oil. Finely chop the garlic and add to the pan with the breadcrumbs and pick in half the thyme leaves. Cook for 5 to 10 minutes, stirring, until golden, then tip into a bowl to cool.
  2. Place the pan back on the heat. Peel and finely slice the remaining garlic and tear or slice the mushrooms and fry for 10 minutes, until golden.
  3. Cook the pasta according to pack instructions. Meanwhile, stir the mushroom soup into the garlicky mushrooms with 1 can’s worth of water and the frozen spinach. Simmer for 5 to 10 minutes, or until the spinach is cooked through. Grate in half the Parmesan and season to taste with pepper.
  4. Using a mug, reserve a little of the cooking water, then drain the pasta and gently toss in the sauce, adding splashes of the cooking water to loosen, if needed. Divide between bowls, sprinkle over the garlicky crumb and grate over the remaining Parmesan. Delicious served with wilted greens or a crisp salad.
