Glorioso Pasta with Mushrooms

For all you garlic and mushroom lovers you’ve come to the right place. This dish combines butter and garlic soaked mushrooms tossed with some spicy chili pepper flakes for a little kick. It’s perfect for a side dish or a Meatless Mondays and it’s been a staple in my house since college.
