Craving pasta, but getting home late tonight? Skip the heavy takeout meals and instead whip up this delicious fettuccine dish that’s quick to create but tastes as decadent as if you had slaved over a hot stove for hours.

The standout ingredient here is the shiitake mushrooms, which lend a distinctive and rich, buttery flavor to the dish. You’ll sauté them with lemon and garlic for less than five minutes, then finish things up with the mouthwatering combo of Parmesan cheese and basil.
