Mushrooms are fungi! So they are in a space all their own, set apart from plants and animals. The body of a mushroom stores nutrients. Mushrooms are nutritious. They are a good source of B vitamins. It is said that they rank the highest among vegetables when it comes to protein.

I am a lover of fresh herbs. Not only do they add beautiful flavor to the dish but they also add some beautiful color! Instead of purchasing herbs each week at the store, consider growing your own herbs at home!
You can also use any type of pasta. I used a gluten-free penne, but feel free to use spaghetti or whatever your little heart desires!
