Little bit of work, but worth the effort.

Prep Time: 15 min
Cook Time: 25 min


  • 1 lb mushrooms, sliced
  • 3-5 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 10 oz fresh baby spinach
  • 1/2 cup sundried tomatoes in oil
  • 1/2 to 3/4 cup white wine
  • fresh basil and/or dried Italian seasoning
  • 2-4 pats of butter
  • 1 lb pasta - your choice
  • crushed red pepper - about 1/4 tsp or less
  • Parmesan cheese


Heat olive oil in a pan (2 tbsp) and add crushed pepper, Italian seasoning and a chopped leaf or two of fresh basil. Immediately add the mushrooms and sundried tomatoes and saute for 1-2 minutes. Add the garlic and wine. Cook until mushrooms are tender.
Cook the pasta according to package directions and drain. Return to pot.   Add a little olive oil. Mix in the spinach and cover.
Meanwhile, whisk 3 pats of butter into mushroom mixture one pat at a time. Combine mixture with pasta and spinach. Sprinkle with cheese to your taste.
