A local family restaurant has a dish very similar to this one that has been a favorite for years. My friend and I came up with this recipe when we were unable to find one anywhere, even in Italian cookbooks.

This is pretty bland; however, here is what I did to improve on it... Added: 1/2 diced yellow onion 1 diced red pepper and I used EVOO instead of the butter. On a second version I used the above ingredient changes and then used whole wheat pasta. Thinking about adding steamed sliced carrots next time.

Simple and just plain delicious! I usually have this as a side dish, but tonight I need something quick and this was perfect for a "meatless" weeknight meal. I used a steam in bag of broccoli and sauteed some fresh portabella mushrooms in a little olive oil along with the garlic. I didn't bother baking this, but just tossed everything together with a little olive oil, a bit of salt and cracked black pepper then topped it with some shredded Parmesan and Romano cheese - delish!

Good recipe, Karen. I added a bit of onion to the mushroom saute, (used fresh shrooms)more garlic and just a touch of Italian seasoning. Topped with a little fresh basil and parm. I would definitely eat this again, and thanks for the recipe!
