Recipe Notes

 

 

 

  • Cook pasta according to the package and drain set aside I cooked mine for 14-15 min and drained. I find whole wheat cooks longer than the white pasta.
  • While your pasta is cooking this is the time to prep all your ingredients.  
  • Remove the stems from the mushrooms, slice them and set aside, (you can freeze the stems for a soup), chop your shallots,  slice your garlic set aside.  I just nuked my frozen veggies in the microwave just to take the freeze off of them they will finish cooking with the dish in the skillet or pan. 
  • While the pasta is boiling heat up a large pan on medium-high heat add two tablespoons of the olive oil add the shallots cook for about 3-4 minutes stirring constantly add the garlic cook for about  1 minute please do not let the garlic burn, (you will be sorry), add your mushrooms,  Aleppo or red pepper flakes and cook for about 4 minutes stirring constantly.
  • Add the veggies and remaining olive oil and cook for about 4 minutes stirring constantly turn your flame down and check your pasta but monitoring the pan.   If the pasta is not cooked remove pan from the flame until the pasta is cooked or al dente.  
  • Once pasta is cooked drain add to the pan, add soy sauce, stir fry sauce use tongs to incorporate all ingredients for about 2 minutes.  Drizzle the sesame oil and garnish with the toasted sesame seeds and enjoy.
  • Please leave me a message and photo I would love to see your finished dish.
  • *use as many organic ingredients as possible
