8 ounces dried linguine

1 tablespoons olive oil


4 ounces shallots, finely diced

16 ounces assorted mushrooms, such as white, baby portobello (cremini) and/or stemmed oyster mushrooms, thinly sliced


Freshly ground black pepper

Generous 1/3 cup low-fat sour cream

2 teaspoons Dijon-style mustard

2 tablespoons finely chopped parsley

2 tablespoons finely chopped dill

Bring a large pot of water to a boil over high heat. Prepare the pasta according to the package directions.

Meanwhile, heat the oil in large nonstick saute pan or skillet over medium-high heat. Stir in the shallots; cook for a few minutes, until softened. Add the mushrooms and season with salt and pepper to taste, stirring to incorporate. Cook, stirring every minute or so, for 8-10 minutes, so the mushrooms' moisture evaporates. Once they start to brown, remove the pan from the heat.

Stir in the sour cream and mustard, along with the parsley and dill. Taste, and adjust the seasoning as needed.

Drain the pasta, reserving cup of the cooking water. Use tongs to toss the linguine in the mushroom mixture, adding the cooking water as needed to keep the dish moist. Serve immediately.

Serves four.
