Ribbon Pasta with Mushrooms and Basil Walnut Pesto


Pesto Sauce


Heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in a large skillet and sauté the garlic for 1 minute. Add the mushrooms, rosemary, oregano and basil. Sauté for about 5 minutes. Add the water, including the shiitake and maitake soaking waters, shoyu, and black pepper. Bring to a boil. Reduce the flame and simmer for 10 to 15 minutes, until the liquid is almost gone.

While the mushrooms are cooking, cook the pasta according to package directions.

Prepare the pesto by placing all ingredients in a food processor or blender and pulse until smooth. When the pasta is done, remove from heat, drain and place in a bowl. Toss in the mushroom mixture. Gently stir in the pesto sauce and place in a serving bowl.
