Conchiglie Mushroom Saute

Would an Amchigele (Konkani) con artist be called Conchiglie? Nice thought! But, as I just discovered, this is just the Italian name for shell pasta. Pasta is something I make pretty often. It fits in very well with my concept of 'one dish wonders'. This particular dish is a must try for all mushroom lovers.


200g Button Mushrooms, chopped
200g Oyster Mushrooms, chopped
200g Shell Pasta, boiled/cooked
1 Onion, finely chopped
1 Garlic pod, finely chopped
1 tbsp Olive Oil
2 tsp Chilli flakes
1/2 tsp Thyme
1 tsp Parsley
Salt and Lime juice to taste

Heat the oil in a pan. Add onion and garlic and fry for a couple of minutes. Add the thyme, parsley and chilli flakes and saute for 1-2 minutes. Add the oyster mushrooms and saute for 2 minutes and then add the button mushrooms. Saute the entire mixture for 2-3 minutes. Add the pasta and salt and cover and cook for a two minutes. Remove from the fire and mix in the lime juice. Enjoy this with Garlic Toast on the side.

Arundathi!! If I can get something here in Gurgaon, of course you can get it in Madras. I still carry loads of stuff from Madras when I return from each trip. :-)

This does really sound tasty, and I like your addition of a bit of chile to the dish too.
