Pierce Brosnan's Penne Pasta

READY IN: 17mins
Recipe by BakinBaby

Rumor has it, this is Pierce Brosnan's favorite penne. It comes from one of Pierce's favorite restaurants, II Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi in California. It has become a Watson favorite with a few of our personal changes. The recipe calls for porcini mushrooms, since I can't find them here, I use fresh portobello mushrooms. This is so simple, but so.... good.

This was a quick and delicous lunch, simple flavors that go well together. Made as written except for increasing the garlic. Made for ZWT 7 by a Food.commando
