Linguine With Mushroom Sage Sauce

"My own invention when I had a lot of sage in the garden. The combination of sage and mushrooms gives this pasta a very earthy, rich taste. You can use any combination of mushrooms you like, but don't chop or slice them too small. You're going for chunky mushrooms here."

  1. FALL PAC 2009: Oh my gosh - this is awesome!! I am a pasta-lover to no end and this dish now takes a place at the top of my list!!


Well, I love to cook! Big surprise there. I've gotten so many great recipes from RecipeZaar that I finally decided to join. My goal is to organize all of my stray recipes to make sure they don't get lost, and also to remember which ones we love! I like a lot of variety, so I rarely cook the same thing week after week. The trouble is, as time goes by, it becomes difficult to remember all of the dishes that everyone loved and/or menus that were a hit when we had company. I'm hoping RecipeZaar will help on that front. I work part-time and have 2 young children, so mostly what I focus on these days is preparing simple, fresh, healthy meals that all of us will enjoy. Our kids are not coddled - they are expected to eat what they are served. However, I do try to have at least one item on the menu that I KNOW they'll like. They are very good eaters overall, but of course they have slightly different tastes, and my son is a "separator," which makes soups and casseroles a challenge sometimes. Luckily, my husband will eat anything (and I mean ANYTHING) that is put in front of him. :-)
