Ingredients

  • INGREDIENTS

  • 2

    tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil

  • 3

    cloves garlic, minced

  • 2

    ounces shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced (1 1/2 cups)

  • 2

    teaspoons freshly grated lemon zest

  • 2

    tablespoons lemon juice, juice

  • 1/4

    teaspoon salt, or to taste

  • Freshly ground pepper, to taste

  • 8

    ounces whole-wheat fettuccine, or spaghetti (see Ingredient note)

  • 1/2

    cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese, (1 ounce)

  • 1/2

    cup chopped fresh basil, divided

Directions

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil for cooking pasta. Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant but not browned, about 1 minute. Add mushrooms and increase heat to medium-high; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Remove from the heat. Meanwhile, cook pasta, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 9 to 11 minutes or according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid. Add the pasta, the reserved cooking liquid, Parmesan and 1/4 cup basil to the mushrooms in the skillet; toss to coat well. Serve immediately, garnished with remaining basil.
