Ingredients

  • 3 tablespoons pine nuts
  • 3 tablespoons olive oil
  • 3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 shallots diced
  • 2 portobello mushrooms stemmed, halved and thinly sliced
  • 2 cups grape tomatoes halved
  • 12 oz kamut penne
  • 12 oz whole wheat penne
  • 6 cups baby spinach
  • 2 tablespoons red wine vinegar
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan cheese

Method

In small skillet, toast pine nuts over medium-low heat until golden, about 4 minutes. Set aside.

In large skillet, heat oil over medium heat; cook garlic and shallot, stirring occasionally, until slightly golden, 3 to 4 minutes.

Add mushrooms; cook, stirring, until beginning to soften, about 4 minutes. Add tomatoes; cook over medium-high heat until skins begin to wrinkle, 1 to 2 minutes.

Meanwhile, in large pot of boiling salted water, cook pasta according to package directions. Drain and return to pot, reserving 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid.

Stir in mushroom mixture, spinach, vinegar, salt, pepper, reserved pine nuts and 1/4 cup of the cooking liquid, adding more liquid as needed to coat. Serve sprinkled with Parmesan cheese.
