Pasta with Sauteed Mushrooms and Lima Beans

pasta with mushrooms and lima beans

Sauteed lima beans are also pretty nom, they're chewy roasted and creamy sauteed. Both good!

12 oz whole wheat pasta
   or 4 cups cooked pasta
1/2 lb mushrooms
3-5 cloves garlic
olive oil
1/2 lb frozen lima beans

Bring water to a boil for the pasta.

Wipe, trim, and slice the mushrooms. Peel and mince the garlic. Heat olive oil in a saute pan over medium high heat and saute the mushrooms until browned, about ten minutes. Add the garlic and lima beans and keep sauteeing until the lima beans are tender, about another ten minutes.

Meanwhile cook the pasta until al dente, about ten minutes. Drain the pasta and when the vegetables are cooked, stir them together with about half the pasta and put away the rest of the pasta for later. If you have cooked pasta that you put away before, you can just add it right to the pan after the mushrooms and lima beans are cooked and heat through.
