Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound uncooked multigrain angel hair pasta
  • 4 large portobello mushrooms (3/4 pound), stems removed
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 plum tomatoes, chopped
  • 1/4 cup pitted Greek olives
  • 1/4 cup minced fresh basil
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh rosemary or 1/4 teaspoon dried rosemary, crushed
  • 1 teaspoon minced fresh thyme or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/8 teaspoon pepper
  • 2/3 cup crumbled feta cheese
  • 1/4 cup shredded Parmesan cheese

Directions

Cook pasta according to package directions for al dente. Meanwhile, cut mushrooms in half and thinly slice. In a large skillet, heat oil over medium heat. Add mushrooms; saute until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Add garlic; cook 1 minute longer. Stir in tomatoes and olives. Reduce heat to low; cook, uncovered, until slightly thickened, about 5 minutes. Stir in herbs, salt and pepper.
Drain pasta, reserving 1/4 cup pasta water. Toss pasta with mushroom mixture, adjusting consistency with reserved pasta water. Sprinkle with cheeses. Yield: 4 servings.

Test Kitchen Tips
  • This isn't a saucy pasta, so leftovers make for a great cold salad the next day.
  • Instead of reaching for the salt shaker, try zesting a little lemon over the pasta and squeezing a bit of juice over each serving. It brightens up the flavor and helps keep it healthy.
  • Other cheeses are great on this dish if you're not a feta fan. Try a little crumbled blue cheese or goat cheese, or even skip the cheese altogether.
  • Put this easy pasta toss on your Meatless Monday menu!
