Mushroom Pasta


Every week, I try to make one meatless dinner.  It’s not that easy since DH is a veggie hater.  He likes so few veggies that I have a tendency to make the same thing over and over.  This recipe was a hit ~ probably because the mushrooms, I used baby bellas and regular white, were meaty and there were so many.

Mushroom Pasta

6 ounces penne pasta (or use your favorite)
16 ozs fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 tbsp olive oil
1 (14.5 oz) can diced tomatoes, undrained
1 tbsp minced fresh basil
1/4 tsp salt
1/2 cup shredded Mozzarella cheese (I used about 1 cup)

Cook pasta according to the box. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, saute the mushrooms in the olive oil for about 5-6 minutes. Add the undrained tomatoes, basil, and salt and cook an stir for another 5 minutes.

Drain the pasta and add it to the skillet. Stir in the cheese and let it cook until the cheese melts.

Makes 4 servings.

Happy Cooking!

  1. Is there any way you can make a printer-friendly version of your recipes like how they have them on Recipezaar? I just printed off this recipe and ended up with 7 pages.

    • Getting a specific button to click to print just the recipe is something I personally can’t do because I don’t understand how to do it but here’s what I do to get just the recipe and not all the other stuff ~ highlight the recipe (by right-clicking and dragging the mouse), click on file in the upper bar, click on print, click on selection, click print. You’ll get just the recipe (or whatever you have highlighted) and nothing else. Hope this helps!

  2. I love your mushroom pasta recipe. It looks so quick and yummy. I would love to throw a few sausage in it, too. Thanks for the recipe.
