Mushrooms, Tomatoes and Basil Pasta

I needed a quick pasta dish the other night and after looking in my refrigerator this was the dish I made. I cooked some pasta while I was chopping the vegetables and got them done. Then I quickly sautéed the mushrooms and garlic. Stir in the tomatoes and cook for one minute and add the pasta back to the pan. Add a little parmesan cheese and a small handful of basil and just like that you have a quick and easy pasta dish that you can have on the table in about 15 minutes.

I used Bucatini pasta for this dish which is like a spaghetti only it has a hole in the center of it. It is one of my favorite pastas but can be difficult to find sometimes. I found mine at World Market. Spaghetti will work just fine with this dish also.
