Bella mushroom & sun-dried tomatoes linguine

Though I do enjoy cooking, rather than eating out, it is some times difficult to get my mind around what I should cook daily. What should I cook today? What should I cook for lunch? I made some pasta for lunch yesterday and thought to share the ‘recipe of the day’ with everyone. I used linguine, but you use whatever pasta you have in your pantry.

1/2 box of pasta

2 1/2 cups of water

Pinch of salt

Method: Boil water. Add a pinch of salt and pasta into boiling water. Cook pasta between 8-10 minutes till al dente (have a bite to the pasta, try not to over-cook it :P).

As for the sauce:

2 tbsp Extra virgin olive oil

1 tsp salt

1/2 tsp black pepper

1 cup Mushrooms (any would do, I used baby bella)

1/2 tsp chili pepper flakes

1 large shallot

3 garlic cloves

4 pieces of sundried tomatoes (regular roma tomatoes would do)

3 tbsp of Parmesan cheese

1/2 tsp of dried basil

Some Italian parsley for garnish

Method: Heat a skillet with e.v.o oil. Add shallots, pepper flakes and garlic. Fry till fragrant. Add mushrooms, and cook through. Toss in sundried tomatoes, dried basil, salt and black pepper. Add cooked pasta and stir up. Add some preserved pasta water to thicken the sauce. Finally, garnish with parmesan cheese and italian parsley. Voila! Bon appetite!


p/s: Sorry folks, the photo that was taken is missing! This is the closest photo I could find on the Internet :)

* 32 percent thought that looking younger would affect their job performance more
positively. They are more than just gaps in a wall that let in light or a way to see outside or through
which we gain access or exit our properties.
Some are dissatisfied with their natural noses, some
have incurred injuries to their noses, and some do not like how aging
has changed their noses.

The idea of our homemade air conditioner with cool water is very simple.
Always buy fresh, shelled cockles from a fish market.
They are “in the middle of investigating” these mortalities, looking into everything from environmental factors including extremely cold weather to effects of the BP oil spill.
