Tasty Spaghetti with Simmered Shiitake ( Pepperoncini style )

This recipe features to use Simmered Shiitake as a natural Umami booster. A friend told me that spaghetti tastes extra good with simmered Shiitake. When I tried making it myself, I couldn’t believe how delicious it was. When simmered, Shiitake lose their pungent aroma, and it enhances their Umami, so cooking them this way will make them a hit even with kids who normally dislike Shiitake. Drain the spaghetti one minute earlier than you normally would, throw it into a frying pan, and soak up some simmered Shiitake’s broth.
