  • prep: 5 mins
  • servings: 4
Photography: Con Poulos


  • 2 cups Braised Mushrooms
  • 1/2 cup water (or low-sodium chicken stock)
  • 2 tablespoons fresh thyme
  • 4 cups Whole-Wheat Linguine
  • 1/4 cup reserved pasta water
  • Coarse salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1/4 cup grated Pecorino

Cook's Note

Don't pour pasta water down the drain! Adding even a splash of cooking water helps pasta sauce cling to cooked noodles.


  1. Step 1

    In a large pan over high heat, warm mushrooms, water (or stock), and thyme, about 30 seconds. Add linguine and reserved pasta water. Toss until heated through. Season with salt and pepper. Top with Pecorino before serving.
