Mushroom and Herb Linguine

This is a quick, easy and very tasty dish.  You can use any kind of mushrooms you like, I used button mushrooms.
 Saute 1 large shallot and 4 minced garlic cloves in a few tablespoons of butter.  Sprinkle with slt and pepper.

 Add some diced fresh herbs, I used sage, basil, oregano, rosemary and parsley.  Slice about 8 mushrooms and add them along with more butter if needed.  Saute them until they wilt and then add 1 cup of chicken stock and 1/2 cup of cream.

 Add 1 tablespoon of truffle oil.

 While that simmers, boil 1 pound of linguine.

 Drain it and toss it with the mushroom sauce and serve it with additional parsley and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese.

 On a side bathroom is working again after 1 entire year!  When I had my bathrooms done years ago, someone did not install an access panel for this shower. Over a year ago the shower system failed and needed to be replaced. This meant removing tile to install the new unit and of course I could not find matching tile. I decided to install a panel of tile which I hoped would look like it was meant to be there.  I ordered the tile and was told that since it was a custom order, it would take 4 months to get it made. I agreed to it not thinking it would take much longer than 4 months. I sure was wrong.

So, after 1 whole year the shower is now working. The new unit is off center because of the way the old plumbing was installed but I really don't care.  It's done and water comes out of it and I am back to having two working bathrooms...woohoo!!! Of course my house redo is still underway with no end in sight yet nut that is a whole other story.
