Servings: 4
Prep time:
Cook time:
Total: 30 minutes


  • ½ pound linguine (but you can use any kind of pasta you want)
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • ¾ pound broccoli florets, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 2 portobello mushrooms (about 3/4 pound) cut in half and sliced thin
  • 3 tablespoons dry white or red wine (you may substitute water or low-sodium canned beef broth)
  • 2 14 1/2-ounce no salt added canned chopped tomatoes
  • ¼ teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • ½ teaspoon salt (optional)
  • ½ cup fresh basil leaves, roughly chopped
  • ¼ cup grated Parmesan cheese


  1. Cook the pasta to al dente according to package directions.  When it's ready, pour in 1 cup of cold water (to stop the cooking process), and then drain it.  Reserve 1/2 cup of the pasta water.
  2. Meanwhile, heat the oil in a large non-stick skillet. Add the garlic, broccoli, and mushrooms. Cook over high heat, stirring for 2 minutes, until mushrooms begin to wilt.
  3. Reduce heat to low and add the wine, tomatoes, and crushed red pepper flakes. Cook, simmering slowly for 2 minutes, stirring twice.
  4. Add the basil and stir.
  5. Add the pasta to the sauce, increase heat and boil for 1 minute to reduce slightly.
  6. Divide the pasta between 4 plates. Top with sauce and sprinkle with the cheese.
  7. Serve immediately.
