This recipe is based on one from Rachael Ray, but I changed it around quite a bit to suite our tastes and what I had on hand. Anyway, this works on its own as a main dish or as a side dish with beef or chicken. It's quite hearty!
In large saute pan with a tight-fitting cover, sauté broken pasta in aabout 1 tablespoon extra virgin olive oil over medium-low heat until golden. Remove and reserve.
Add onion and saute until tender. Add garlic and saute 1 minute.
Add mushrooms and saute until tender and liquid they give off cooks off.
Season mixture to taste with sea salt and freshly ground black pepper.
Add broth and 1 cup plain water, worcestershire sauce and wine. Stir until blended. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to simmer. Cover and cook over medium-low heat until liquid is absorbed, about 15 - 20 minutes. If pasta is not al dente at end of cooking time, add 1/2 cup water and cook, covered, until absorbed. If some liquid remains, uncover and reduce over medium heat, stirring often, until liquid is evaporated.
Just before serving, drizzle greens with about 2 to 3 teaspoons olive oil and 2 to 3 teaspoons lemon juice to taste. Toss very gently.
Serve pasta in bowls, topped with dressed greens and sprinkled with toasted almonds. Optional: Sprinkle with grated blend of parmesan and romano cheese.
