  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms 200 grams
  • 1 clove garlic chopped
  • 4 tablespoons olive oil 60 grams
  • 1/4 cup fresh Italian parsley chopped 7 grams
  • 1/2 teaspoon oregano 1/2 gram
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 2 1/2 grams
  • 1/4 cup water 60 grams
  • 4 leaves or 5 fresh basil chopped or 1/2 teaspoon dried 1/2 gram
  • 5-6 ripe tomatoes chopped remove seeds
  • hot pepper flakes if desired pinch or 2
  • 3 cups cooked fusilli pasta


  • In a large pan add oil, garlic, mushrooms, parsley, oregano, salt, hot pepper flakes and water. Cook on medium low heat, stirring occasionally (so mushrooms don't burn), continue to cook for a couple of minutes until water has evaporated and mushrooms are tender (we like our mushrooms a little bit browned so continue to cook a couple of minutes extra if you like them that way also). Gently mix in the tomatoes and basil and cook until tomatoes are tender and thickened (approximately 10 minutes). Toss with cooked pasta. Serve immediately. Enjoy!
