Pasta Caprese with Mushroom White Wine Sauce
1/2 lb of Angel Hair Pasta
1 cup Crimini Mushrooms, sliced
1 pint Cherry Tomatoes, halved
1/2 lb Fresh Mozzarella, halved (we used the small sized balls of fresh mozzarella to match the size of the cherry tomatoes)
1/3 cup Fresh Basil, chopped
2 Tblsp Fresh Parsley, chopped
1/3 cup Sauvignon Blanc
Salt and Pepper to taste
2 Tblsp Extra Virgin Olive Oil
Cook the Pasta and strain it, adding olive oil if the sauce is not ready so that it doesn’t stick together as it sits.
Heat the olive oil in large saucepan. On medium high heat, place mushrooms in pan and let cook for 2-3 minutes. Add Cherry tomatoes and allow them to cook. Just blister the tomatoes slightly, about a minute.
Add the pasta, and stir in with the ingredients in the sauce pan. Immediately add Sauvignon Blanc and allow the alcohol to cook out, another half a minute. Salt the pasta lightly but evenly.
Turn the heat off. Leaving the pasta in the warm pan, add your fresh herbs and fresh Mozzarella, stirring in to warm the cheese.
Now you can Salt and Pepper to taste, garnish with fresh basil, serve, and enjoy with a cup of Sauvignon Blanc.
