Simple and Easy...

There's nothing easier that a simple and fast home made meal. Imagine yourself just came home from a busy day and feel so hungry...I am sure you are not gonna waste any more time to cook something that will take quite some time to prepare or maybe something that's too complicated. How about this one? I bet you'll love this recipe I found on Simply Delicious - Linguini with Garlic & Mushrooms. Why did I choose this recipe? Because I love anything with garlic and mushroom. It is simply easy and delicious...I guarantee it won't take long to prepare =)
  • Ingredients (Serves 4):
  • 500g Linguini
  • 500g Portabellini mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 large leeks, finely chopped
  • 4 garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup reduced fat cream (optional)
  • juice of 1/2 lemon
  • salt & pepper to taste
  • fresh oregano to serve (optional)
  1. Bring a large pot of water to the boil and add the linguini. Cook for +- 10 minutes until Al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large sauce pan, fry the mushrooms and leeks until all the liquid from the mushrooms have evaporated and the mushrooms have started to brown (+- 5-7 minutes). Add the garlic and fry for another minute.
  3. Add the cream and lemon juice and season to taste.
  4. Drain the linguini and toss through the sauce. Serve with extra cracked black pepper and a few Oregano leaves.
