Comforting but still quick and light pasta dish, you can make with trivial ingredients that you usually have in the fridge and pantry. —Paula

What You'll Need
  • 150 grams Paris mushrooms
  • 1 Clove garlic, unpeeled, lightly crushed
  • 1 tablespoon Extra virgin olive oil
  • 200 grams Dry pasta (I used bucatini but you may use another type)
  • 2 tablespoons Roquefort cheese
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper
  • Fresh oregano leaves
  1. Thoroughly clean the mushrooms and, if they're large, cut in half or quarters; otherwise leave them whole.
  2. In a skillet, heat the olive oil with the garlic clove over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and let them brown all over, while loosing some of their natural humidity. Season with salt and freshly ground black pepper.
  3. Cook the pasta in boiling water, seasoned with salt (the amount of time varies but it's mentioned on the package). Drain the water, keeping 2 or 3 tablespoons of it.
  4. Add the cheese to the pasta and stir to melt a little. To make the cheese sauce creamier, add some of the cooking water that you've reserved, if necessary.
  5. Add the mushrooms and serve immediately, garnished with fresh oregano.
