Portabello Mushrooms and Angel Hair Pasta

What you need: 

5 tablespoons of olive oil
1 large leek or 2 bunches of scallions
4 minced garlic cloves
6 ozs. of portabello mushrooms, diced or sliced
1 tablespoon of balsamic vinegar
10 ozs. of angel hair pasta

What you do: 

Heat the olive oil. Sautee the leeks (or scallions) for about 2 minutes. Add the garlic, and sautee for another 30 seconds or so. Add mushrooms, and sautee until they are wilted and the liquid the mushrooms gave off has evaporated. (I don't mind the liquid, I actually think it works better with it in the end..) Then add the vinegar. Stir, season with a bit of salt, and set aside.
THEN, cook the angel hair pasta. (Allowing the veggie mixture to set while the pasta is cooking allows the flavor to enhance itself.) When pasta is ready, drain, and then add the veggie mixture, and viola, the best tasting pasta dish EVER!!

SO HOW'D IT GO?

Really easy and good flavor.  Needed lots of salt and pepper.  I may marinate my mushrooms in balsamic next time.

It was yummy.  I used rotini noodles instead of angel hair, but it didn't make a difference.  I'd make it again.

Excellent recipe.  I made it the other day.  Added some extra portabellos and garlic, and added some rings of sliced roma tomatoes at the very end, and it was really good.

If you're concerned about the oil in this recipe, you can probably cut it with another liquid like water, vegetable broth, or tomato juice.

olive oil is 119 calories per tablespoon, so as far as the calorie count of this recipe-ALOT.
