Celebrity chef Scott Conant shares a quick and easy pasta recipe for farfalle with sauteed shiitake mushrooms.
"We are sautéing beautiful fresh shiitake mushrooms, which are such a special ingredient that I like to let it speak for itself. This pasta is right up my alley because it's so simple and so good. Enjoy it with someone special…or not." —Scott

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.
Peel the stems of the mushrooms and wipe the caps clean with a damp paper towel. Slice the stems and caps very thinly; you should have about 2 cups.
Heat olive oil in a 10-inch skillet over medium-high heat. Add garlic, crushed red pepper, fresh thyme and a pinch of kosher salt and cook until the garlic begins to sizzle. Add mushrooms and cook, without stirring, until golden brown on one side, about 2 minutes. Stir the shiitakes, add about 6 tablespoons pasta cooking water and cook until tender, about 5 minutes.
Meanwhile, cook the pasta until just shy of al dente. Gently drain the pasta, then add the pasta and ¼ cup pasta cooking water to the pan and toss. Cook the pasta until al dente, adding a little more water if necessary. Remove the pan from heat and add Parmigiano, parsley and butter, then toss to combine.
