This is an easy recipe I make when I need comfort food without a lot of effort. I love cooked mushrooms and I love pasta and I love garlic. This is so easy to throw together . You can make the sauce in the time it takes to boil the pasta water and cook it. I like this with bow-tie pasta - basically any kind of pasta that doesn't take too long to cook al-dente. There are also no real ingredient measurements - I just make this one up as I go along. It always ends up tasting the same!!
1 clove crushed garlic - or more if you like things really garlicky - I do!
Sliced fresh mushrooms of choice - I used large plain white mushrooms - about 4 cups sliced should serve 2 people
Green onions - this is optional. I only mention it here because the picture of this meal happened to include them. I might leave them out in the future because they didn't add anything to the flavour .
Cracked black pepper.
Pasta of choice
Bring a large pot of salted water to boil and add enough pasta to serve whoever you are feeding.....
Meanwhile, add a few tablespoons olive oil to a skillet. Turn the heat to medium high and add the crushed garlic. Fry that up a bit and add the sliced mushrooms. As the mushrooms are sautéing, give them a good stir to coat well with the garlic-olive oil mixture and cook the mushrooms down. Reduce heat and cover to allow moisture from the mushrooms to be released. This should take 5-10 minutes.
Drain the cooked pasta when it's al-dente and add to your skillet mushroom mixture. Add some cracked bell pepper, stir it up, serve it and enjoy!!
