  1. 12 oz spaghetti
  2. 4 tbsp unsalted butter
  3. 1 small onion, finely chopped
  4. 2 cloves garlic, minced
  5. 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  6. 2 cups chicken broth
  7. 2 cups heavy cream
  8. 1/4 tsp ground nutmeg
  9. 1/2 tsp salt
  10. 1/4 tsp black pepper
  11. 3 cups cooked chicken, shredded
  12. 1 cup fresh mushrooms, thinly sliced
  13. 1 cup Parmesan cheese, freshly grated
  14. 1/4 cup breadcrumbs for topping



  1. Begin by preheating your oven to 350°F (175°C). This sets the stage for a perfect bake.
  2. Cook the spaghetti as per package instructions until al dente, then drain and set aside.


  1. In a large skillet, melt the butter over medium heat. Sauté the chopped onion and minced garlic until they become soft and fragrant.
  2. Sprinkle in the flour, stirring continuously, to form a smooth paste. This is the base of your sauce.
  3. Gradually whisk in the chicken broth and heavy cream, ensuring no lumps form.
  4. Season the sauce with nutmeg, salt, and pepper, cooking until it thickens to a creamy consistency.
  5. Add the shredded cooked chicken and sliced mushrooms to the sauce, mixing well.
  6. Gently fold in the cooked spaghetti, ensuring it’s evenly coated with the sauce.

Finishing Touches:

  1. Transfer the mixture to a baking dish.
  2. Sprinkle the top with grated Parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs, creating a layer that will bake to a crispy, golden finish.
  3. Bake in the preheated oven for 25-30 minutes, or until the top is bubbly and golden brown.

Pro Tips:

  • How can I prevent the pasta from becoming soggy? Cook it until just al dente as it will continue to cook in the oven.

  • Can I use different types of mushrooms? Absolutely! Feel free to experiment with varieties like cremini or portobello for different flavors.

  • What’s the secret to a smooth sauce? The gradual addition of liquids to the roux (flour and butter mixture) is key to preventing lumps.

  • Can I make this dish ahead of time? Yes, assemble the casserole ahead and refrigerate. Bake when ready to serve.
