The earthy mushrooms and their perfumed broth pair well with a whole wheat or whole grain pasta or rice. There is a depth of flavor that has hints of cannabis and rosemary along with the subtle and fantastic flavor of the sautéed leeks and carrots. If you must have a meat or poultry, add cooked chicken in step 2.
- In a small bowl combine the dried mushrooms with 1 cup of hot water. Allow mixture to sit for 20 minutes.
- In a large skillet heat the olive oil. Sauté the leeks and the carrots until cooked and tender, 8-10 minutes. Add the garlic and stir to combine. Place in a bowl. Add the fresh mushrooms to the pan and cook until the moisture from the mushrooms is released, 8-10 minutes. Add the rosemary and the salt and return the vegetables to the pan along with the mushrooms and their liquid.
- Cook the pasta according to the instructions on the package.
- Divide the cooked pasta between the 6 plates. Place the mushrooms on top of each serving of pasta. Keep warm.
