Linguine With Lemon, Garlic And Thyme Mushrooms
When I'm in no mood to cook an elaborate dinner, pasta comes to my rescue. We mostly prefer no-sauce pasta dishes over creamy, pesto or other sauce based pastas. When there is no sauce, the flavor comes from the vegetables, herbs and spices and each time you can create a unique pasta dish. While googling for quick and no-sauce pasta recipes, I stumbled upon this Nigella Lawson recipe.
The original recipes calls for mushrooms steeped in oil, garlic, lemon and thyme which is then tossed in fresh hot pasta. I was not sure how raw mushrooms would taste, so I adapted the recipe slightly to suit our tastes. I tossed the mushrooms in olive oil and little butter and added more spices. The lemon zest and juice added a wonderful freshness to the pasta. What I love about this recipe is how quickly it can be done - while the pasta is cooking, get ready the sauteed mushrooms. Off to the recipe now!
