So, where can you find dandelion greens this time of year? Locally, I’ve found them at several stores including Fred Meyer, Whole Foods, and the Boise Co-op. Come spring, it’s perfectly fine to pick a few dandelions from your own yard, just be certain they haven’t been sprayed with weed killer or pesticides.

Quick and Easy

To make this recipe, throw the sauce ingredients into a blender or food processor. Once blended, use the sauce to saute the mushrooms in a cast iron skillet.

While you saute the mushrooms, cook your favorite pasta in a separate pot. When the mushrooms are fully cooked (about 15 minutes on medium heat) stir in the cooked pasta and olives.

Trying New Foods

My kids are huge fans of mushrooms, pesto, and noodles, so introducing this dish wasn’t a big stretch for them. If this will be a completely new food for your kids, start with just a little bit of sauce and work from there. To get started, you might encourage them to try the olives. Offer this dish when your kids are hungry. I’d love to hear your tips for getting your kids to try new foods!

Also, my kids don’t like a ton of garlic, so if you’re a garlic fan, I’d add an extra clove or two.

Grain-Free Option

The noodles pictured in this post are Tolerant Organic Green Lentil Elbow Noodles. This post isn’t sponsored by Tolerant, these are just the noodles my four-year-old picked out at the store. If you decide to try these noodles, just be careful not to overcook them (I recommend checking them at four minutes).


Place a cast iron skillet over medium heat. Add sliced mushrooms and contents from the blender. Stir together and leave on medium heat for approximately 15 minutes, stirring occasionally.

In a large pot, boil pasta as per instructions on box.

Add cooked pasta and olives to mushrooms and stir. Serve.

Thanks for checking out this Spinach, Dandelion, and Mushroom Pasta recipe. I hope you and your little (dandelion) eaters enjoy!

I’ve noticed a lot of stores are carrying them recently. I bought these at a local store called the Boise Coop, but I’ve also seen them recently at Whole Foods and Fred Meyer. I’m looking forward to picking my own this summer! ??

This is definitely something different to what I would usually cook. I want to eat way less meat though this year so am looking for veggie recipes to try .
