Ingredients

  • 8 ounces whole-wheat fettuccine
  • 6 cups shredded Savoy cabbage, (about 1 small head)
  • 2 teaspoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 4 medium portobello mushroom caps, gills removed, thinly sliced
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 3 cloves garlic, minced
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine
  • 2 teaspoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon freshly ground pepper
  • 1 cup grape tomatoes, halved
  • 1 cup diced smoked cheese, such as smoked mozzarella, Cheddar or gouda
  • 2 teaspoons chopped fresh sage, or 3/4 teaspoon dried

Preparation

  1. Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta for 4 minutes. Add cabbage and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the pasta and cabbage are tender, about 4 minutes more. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid and drain the pasta and cabbage.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms are tender and beginning to release their liquid, about 5 minutes.
  3. Whisk wine and flour in a small bowl. Add to the pan along with salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until the mixture thickens, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook until just beginning to break down, about 1 minute more.
  4. Return the pasta and cabbage to the pot. Add the mushroom sauce, the reserved cooking liquid, cheese and sage; gently toss to combine.
