1 bunch Italian parsley, finely chopped to yield 1/4 cup
1/2 cup butter
1/4 teaspoon red chile flakes

Bring 6 quarts of water to a boil in a pasta pot. Once boiling cook pasta for 7 minutes as per package instructions.

In a 12 to 14-inch skillet, heat the olive oil over high heat until smoking.

Add the garlic and mushrooms and saute over high heat until the mushrooms are browned.

In the bowl of a food processor, combine the sauteed mushrooms and garlic and the parsley and puree. Season with salt and pepper, to taste. In the same saute pan, heat the butter over high heat until it foams and subsides. Add the olive puree and chile flakes and cook 5 minutes. Season to taste.
