Recipes with Casey: Simple White Wine Penne

Pasta makes for excellent comfort food during the stressful holiday season.

Pasta makes for excellent comfort food during the stressful holiday season.

When I get home after a long day at school or work I am usually cranky, hungry and exhausted. Even as someone who loves to cook, I have moments where I’m just ready to reach for the phone and order some greasy take-out to satisfy a growling stomach. After finding the will power to stop myself, this meal is my go to dish. It’s easy and fast to make, and has complex carbs to fully satisfy.

Ingredients

  • 1 package of cherry tomatoes
  • Fresh basil
  • Gluten-free pasta
  • Whole cremini mushrooms
  • Garlic
  • White wine/cooking wine
  • Freshly- grated parmesan cheese
  • Olive oil

Directions

  • Place a pot of water on high heat with a tablespoon of olive oil for the pasta.
  • Add just enough oil to cover the bottom of a medium saucepan and place on medium heat.
  • Mince and add about a tablespoon of garlic to the pan.
  • While the garlic is heating up, halve the tomatoes.
  • Add tomatoes to the pan and toss in the garlic.
  • Dice mushrooms and add to the pan.
