Super Garlicky Veggie Radiatore Pasta with Mushrooms

29 Sep

Last week, O told me he wanted to eat more garlic. I was looking through the pantry and found the bag of pasta from Trader Joe’s and decided to make a simple and garlicky pasta dish for us.

[ Ingredients ]
– 1 bag of Trader Joe’s vegetable radiatore pasta
– 1 bulb of medium sized garlic minced
– approximately 1 1/2 cups of mushrooms of your choice. I used a pack of fresh mixed “gourmet mushrooms” from Whole Foods.
– smoked sea salt (to taste – I used Maldon smoked sea salt)
– extra virgin olive oil
– red pepper flakes (to your liking)

[ Process ]
– cook pasta per package directions
– when done, drain it in a pasta strainer
– put the pot used to cook the pasta on the stove & turn up heat to medium
– when the pot is a bit warm, add olive oil
– add minced garlic, red pepper flakes, mushrooms
– after a couple of minutes, when it’s fragrant, add the pasta
– sprinkle smoked sea salt

The words “super garlicky” really drew me in here. I’m always adding about twice as much garlic as any recipe calls for. One question though – where do you find “smoked sea salt” in the US? I’ll have to look for it.

Anyway, terrific recipe – going to bookmark it!
