  • 1/4 cup peanut oil
  • 3/4 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced

  • 1 teaspoon black pepper


  1. Cook the pasta according to the package directions; drain.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the oil over medium heat. Add the mushrooms and garlic, and sauté for 5 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently.
  3. Add the roasted peppers and green beans and continue cooking for 5 minutes, stirring frequently.
  4. Add the cavatelli, basil, salt and pepper, and cook for 3 to 5 minutes, or until heated through.

Garnishing tip: If you want this to look like it does when they serve it at Chicago's Rosebud Cafe, garnish it with a sprinkle of fresh chopped parsley.
