  1. Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over a medium high heat. Fry the mushrooms with a pinch of salt for 10-12 mins until the water that comes off them evaporates and the mushrooms turn golden.
  2. Bring a large pan of salted water to the boil and cook the spaghetti for 9-10 mins until al dente. Drain, keeping a cupful of the water.
  3. Stir the garlic into the mushrooms, and fry for 1 minute until fragrant. Tip in the drained spaghetti, spinach and lemon zest. Toss well, squeeze over the lemon juice and season with pepper. Add a few tablespoons of the pasta water and toss everything together to coat the pasta. Scatter over the grated cheese to serve.
