Whole Grain Pasta in a mushroom thyme sauce
Whole Wheat Elbow Pasta / Brown Rice Pasta - 1 cup
Sliced Button Mushroom - 2 cups
Olive Oil - 1 tbsp
Shallot - 1, finely chopped
Garlic - 3 cloves, finely sliced
Fresh Thyme - a couple of sprigs, tear off the tiny leaves
Heavy Cream - 1/4 cup
Boil 8 cups of water in a big pan. Once water starts boiling, add 3 tsp salt and drop the pasta.
While the pasta is cooking, heat olive oil in a big skillet. Add the shallots and garlic and a pinch of salt. Cook till they get soft. Now add the sliced mushroom and saute till the mushroom is cooked.
Add the heavy cream and thyme leaves. Cook till the sauce reaches desired consistency. Drain the pasta and add it directly to the sauce. Mix well and serve.
