Italian Mushroom, Garlic And Basil Pasta Recipe

I have a thing for pasta at the moment. I’m even choosing it over potatoes which is unheard of for me!
This mushroom, garlic and oregano pasta is syn free and delicious. You can keep a bowl of it in the fridge and have it for a snack when you get peckish.
