A simple pasta for guests

You may have noticed that I always say to make pasta for guests. This may seem redundant. It's not. People love pasta, and it's really hard to screw it up. Really hard. Especially when it has few ingredients, and an easy method to make. It also looks really pretty!

Easy Fancy Sundried Tomato Mushroom Pasta
Enough pasta for each person you're serving.
Per person:
1/2  cup sliced mushrooms
1/3 cup diced sundried tomatoes
1/2 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp minced garlic
1/3 cup white wine (not anything fancy, do the cheap stuff, no one will notice!)
A few shakes basil, salt, pepper.

Cook your pasta up the way you normally do it. Drain and etc.
In a frying pan, sautee the garlic and mushrooms in the olive oil. After the mushrooms have released their moisture and are getting nice and cooked up, add in the sundried tomatoes and white wine. Continue to sautee until most of the wine has been absorbed into the mushrooms and tomatoes.
Toss the pasta and the sauteed mixture in a bowl together. Season with the basil, salt and pepper.
Eat and enjoy the fanciness :)

Nom nom nom!
