Whole Wheat Fettuccine with Mushrooms
- Mince garlic and thyme together; set aside.
- Heat large nonstick sauté pan over medium heat; toast walnuts, stirring often with wooden spoon, for 2 minutes or just until fragrant. Transfer nuts to small dish.
- Heat oil in same pan; cook garlic and thyme for 1 minute. Stir in mushrooms; cook for about 5 minutes or until they release juices, then start to look dry. Increase heat to high; stir in wine and vinegar. Cook for 1 minute; reduce heat, stir in salt and pepper to taste. Remove from heat; keep warm.
- In large pot of boiling salted water, cook fettuccine as directed on package. Drain, reserving 1/4 cup cooking water. Add fettuccine and cooking water to pan along with reserved mushrooms; cook, stirring, over medium heat until heated through. Transfer to serving platter; sprinkle with walnuts. Pass cheese on the side.
Tip: If desired, you can substitute fettuccine made with semolina flour instead of whole wheat.
