Easy Mushroom Linguine Recipe

If you love pasta, but want a change from the usual spaghetti with tomato sauce, try this mushroom linguine recipe. Make sure you parboil the broccoli rabe or spinach for a delicious mellow flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 lb multigrain linguine
  • 1 bunch broccoli rabe, spinach or asparagus, chopped
  • 1 1/2 lb mixed mushrooms, such as shiitake, cremini, and portobello
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 2 leeks, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, finely chopped
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper
  • 1/8 tsp crushed red-pepper flakes, optional
  • 2 Tbsp finely chopped thyme leaves
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1/2 cup skim milk
  • 1/4 cup grated Romano cheese

Directions

  1. In a large pot, cook pasta according to package directions.
  2. In another large pot, bring water to a boil. Add broccoli rabe (or other vegetable), and cook until bright green, about 1 minute. Drain in a colander or sieve and set aside.
  3. Wipe mushrooms clean with a damp towel and remove woody stems. Thinly slice the mushrooms.
  4. In a large deep skillet, heat oil over medium-high heat until hot. Add the mushrooms and cook until deeply golden and tender, about 10 minutes.
  5. Add leeks, broccoli rabe, garlic, black pepper, red pepper (if using) and thyme to mushrooms. Cook for 3 to 4 minutes, stirring occasionally. Add wine; cook for 30 seconds.
  6. Reduce heat to medium and stir in milk. Cook until milk is heated through. In a large bowl, toss pasta with mushroom sauce and cheese. Serve immediately.
