servings: 4

total time: 30 minutes

recipe by: 


  • 1 pound whole grain penne pasta
  • 2 TBSP olive oil
  • 1 pound white mushrooms, sliced
  • 2 leeks, thinly sliced (white and pale green parts only)
  • 1 ounce freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • salt & pepper


  1. Cook the penne pasta in a dutch oven or large pot of water about 1 minute shy of package directions.

  2. Drain the pasta, reserving about 1/2 cup of the pasta water, and set aside.

  3. Heat the oil in the now empty pot over medium-high heat.

  4. Add the mushrooms and leeks to the pot and cook, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are browned and leeks are softened, about 5 minutes.

  5. Stir in the cooked pasta, Parmesan, 1/2 tsp salt, and 1/4 tsp pepper. Stir in the reserved pasta water a little at a time until you reach a desired consistency.

  6. Season with additional salt & pepper if necessary.
