linguine with mushrooms

So for this meal I started off with some intriguing spinach and chive linguine courtesy of Trader Joe's.  I'm sure you could make it with regular linguine, but I'd amp up the seasonings to account for that.

  • pack of linguine
  • chopped baby bella mushrooms
  • a zuchinni
  • fresh baby spinach
  • crushed garlic
  • olive oil
  • crushed chili flakes
  • salt/pepper
  • grated sharp white cheddar to top
Above you'll see the pre- and post-cooked goodness of the veggies.  The whole mess looked less appealing when dumped on top of the pasta and covered in cheese, but I can assure you it was delicious.  I won't give instruction on this, basically chop, simmer/boil and serve.  If it seems too dry, add more olive oil.  


  1. I make a version of this dish at least twice a week! But I inelegantly call it Pasta with Stuff on It. (Also, it doesn't usually come out looking pretty like yours.)

  2. ha i struggled with the name on this one ... in my head i assure you i also call it pasta with stuff on it.
