crimini mushroom pasta

Last night, I was flipping through DVR-ed episodes of Nigella Express and when I saw her rolling up sizable ball of liguine, I knew what I was making for my dinner-for-one on Friday night.  It is extremely simple and perfect for hot summer season, since the sauce only needs a bit of chopping, grating and tossing!  I used pecorino romano (which I had in my fridge) instead of parmesan.  Also, didn’t have any parsley, sprinkled extra thyme after placing the pasta in a serving bowl.  It was velvety with cheese and musky yet refreshing as I added plenty of lemon juice.
