Cook Time: 20 mins

Servings: 4 people


8 ounces dry pasta I used Toscani-shaped pasta

Kosher salt

⅓ cup extra virgin olive

1 tablespoon butter

2 shallots minced

5 garlic cloves minced

8 ounces Baby Bella Mushrooms sliced

8 ounces white mushrooms sliced

8 ounces portabella mushrooms roughly chopped

black pepper

1 teaspoon rosemary

3 tablespoons of tomato paste

¼ cup merlot wine

½ cup of grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (Parmesan)

½ cup packed parsley

⅓ cup chopped walnuts

Red pepper flakes to taste optional




⭐Cook the pasta to al dante in boiling salted water according to box instructions. Keep 1 cup of the pasta cooking water then drain the pasta.

⭐In a large skillet, heat the olive and butter over medium-high heat, add the shallots and garlic and cook, tossing regularly for 2 to 3 minutes (manage the heat so that the garlic does not burn).

⭐Add all the mushrooms and toss them around in the pan for a couple of minutes, adding another drizzle of extra virgin olive oil. Season with a good pinch of kosher salt, black pepper and the rosemary. Cook the mushrooms for about 7 to 10 minutes, tossing occasionally, until they turn color and release their juices.

⭐Add the tomato paste, wine and about ½ to ¾ cup of the pasta cooking water. Cook over medium heat for about 4 to 5 minutes (this becomes your mushroom pasta sauce).

⭐Add the cooked pasta to the mushroom sauce. Toss to combine. If needed add a little bit more of the pasta cooking water.

⭐Stir in Parmesan cheese and finish with a sprinkle of parsley, walnuts and red pepper flakes. Serve immediately!



If you’re following the Mediterranean diet strictly, use whole wheat pasta. For a vegan option, omit the butter and use a vegan parmesan alternative or omit the cheese altogether.
