  • 2 C. cremini mushrooms, sliced

  • 2 T. grated Parmesan cheese

Step 1

Place dried mushrooms in a medium bowl and cover with 1 C. boiling water. Let stand 15 minutes. Drain, reserving soaking liquid. Rinse mushrooms and chop into small pieces; set aside.
Meanwhile, cook pasta according to package directions. Transfer to a large bowl and cover with foil to keep warm.
Heat oil in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add garlic and all mushrooms and cook until fresh mushrooms wilt and release juice (3-5 min).
