Pasta alla Carla

In a large skillet put a table spoon of olive oil. Then add…

1 red pepper, cubed

3 cups of sliced mushrooms

Salt and pepper to taste

½ teaspoon of garlic

1-2 cups of water

Cook until tender.

Sprinkle with basil

In a large pot, boil water with 1 tablespoon of salt.

When it is boiling add 1 pound of pasta and reduce flame.

Boil for 4 minutes, scoop 2 cups of water from the pat and drain pasta.

Put the pasta in the skillet with the vegetables and continue to cook until to your taste. Add the water as needed.

I prefer to use the De Cecco or Barilla pasta, any cut is just good, good, good……..
