2 ounces  shiitake mushrooms, stemmed and sliced (1 1/2 cups)
2 teaspoons  freshly grated lemon zest
2 tablespoons  lemon juice juice
1/4 teaspoon  salt, or to taste
Freshly ground pepper to taste
8 ounces  whole-wheat fettuccine or spaghetti (see Ingredient note)

Fettuccine with Shiitake Mushrooms & Basil Recipe at
Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil for cooking pasta.

Heat oil in large nonstick skillet over low heat. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant but not browned, about 1 minute. Add mushrooms and increase heat to medium-high; cook, stirring occasionally, until tender and lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. Stir in lemon zest, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Remove from the heat.

Meanwhile, cook pasta, stirring occasionally, until just tender, 9 to 11 minutes or according to package directions. Drain, reserving 1/2 cup cooking liquid.

Add the pasta, the reserved cooking liquid, Parmesan and 1/4 cup basil to the mushrooms in the skillet; toss to coat well. Serve immediately, garnished with remaining basil.
