Submitted by: Rose Lyons, Owensboro, KY
Another easy and tasty vegetable dish, sure to please.
1 pound linguine or other type long pasta
Course salt and ground pepper
2 Tbs. olive oil
2 pounds of assorted fresh mushrooms, cleaned and sliced 1/2" thick
6 garlic cloves, sliced
1 cup finely grated Parmesan cheese, plus some extra for serving
Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until tender. Reserve 1 cup of cooking water.
Drain pasta and return to pot.
Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add mushrooms and garlic, season
with salt and pepper. Cover skillet and cook, tossing occasionally until mushrooms have softened
and released their liquid (7 -10 minutes). Uncover skillet and reduce heat to medium. Continue cooking, tossing occasionally until mushrooms are tender and browned (additional 10 -12 minutes).
Add mushroom mixture and Parmesan cheese to pasta and toss to combine. Add as much reserved pasta water
as is necessary to create a light sauce. Serve immediately. Top with more Parmesan cheese.
