Ingredients:

  • 12 ounces whole-wheat fettuccine
  • 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 cups sliced mixed (sliced) mushrooms, such as cremini, oyster and/or shiitake
  • 4 cups thinly sliced Brussels sprouts
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/2 cup dry sherry (see Note), or 2 tablespoons sherry vinegar
  • 2 cups low-fat milk
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup finely shredded Asiago cheese, plus more for garnish

Directions:

  • 1.Cook pasta in a large pot of boiling water until tender, 8 to 10 minutes. Drain, return to the pot and set aside.
  • 2.Meanwhile, heat oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and Brussels sprouts and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms release their liquid, 8 to 10 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, about 1 minute. Add sherry (or vinegar), scraping up any brown bits; bring to a boil and cook, stirring, until almost evaporated, 10 seconds (if using vinegar) or about 1 minute (if using sherry).
  • 3.Whisk milk and flour in a bowl; add to the skillet with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring, until the sauce bubbles and thickens, about 2 minutes.
  • Stir in Asiago until melted. Add the sauce to the pasta; gently toss. Serve with more cheese, if desired.
  • I prefer dry sherry, sold with other fortified wines in your wine or liquor store, instead of higher-sodium “cooking” sherry.
Notes: Sliced Brussels sprouts and mushrooms cook quickly and cling to the pasta in our fall version of pasta primavera. Look for presliced mushrooms to cut prep time. Serve with a tossed salad.

Can you make this with some other type of pasta ? I do not like fettuccini.
