Mushroom Pasta with Wilted Arugula & Cheese
| dish: main|
Cook pasta according to package directions, but before draining, reserve 3 Tablespoons cooking water. While the pasta is cooking, heat oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic and shallots and cook until shallots are translucent. Add mushrooms and salt and continue to cook until most of the liquid has evaporated. Toss pasta with mushrooms, arugula, and goat cheese. Stir in reserved cooking liquid until cheese becomes creamy. Toss in parsley and season to taste with salt and pepper.
