Is spaghetti the same as tagliatelle?
Spaghetti and tagliatelle aren't the same although they are both long pastas. Spaghetti are strings of pasta while tagliatelle are flat strips. Although they are different both could definitely be used for this recipe so feel free to sub in spaghetti if that's what you have on hand.
How do you clean mushrooms?
Mushrooms are porous so it's important not to wash them using water - they'll suck up all the water which will stop them from browning when you add them to the pan. Simply use a slightly damp paper towel to wipe any dirt away.
