Here is a easy, fairly quick and tasty one pot wonder ~ great to serve with "instant salad" from a bag with some fresh cut tomatoes and a good glass of Merlot.
Sliced mushrooms (wash, dry and slice before you leave, store in paper bag, they will keep well)
Saute mushrooms in some olive oil
Boil water for your favorite pasta ~ maybe a nice mix of whole wheat pasta and spinach pasta
To the mushrooms add sun dried tomatoes that are either the "soft" ones, or plumped up from olive oil
Add a nice ready made basil pesto (usually available in any market) to taste continue to saute to warm everything up
When the pasta is just done, mix all together. Sometimes if parts get cool I will mix over low heat a minute or two.
For an extra "rich" taste add a bit of thick cream to the mix (no calories in this recipe!)
The thing I like about this is that most of it can travel very well and it is quick and easy ~ you can make lots of it for a group or a small amount for two.
