Ingredients

1 lb
linguine, cooked - drained as directed on package
2 Tbsp
olive oil
2 Tbsp
butter
1 bunch
broccoli, cut into flourets - i used 3 small heads, equivalent to one large
3 - 4 clove
garlic, chopped
8 - 10
fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 bunch
green onions, sliced
1 1/2 c
heavy cream
1/4 - 1/3 c
grated parmesan
1 - 1 1/2 c
shredded provolone cheese
2 - 3 Tbsp
fresh parsley, chopped - optional...i didn't use this time
1/2 - 1 tsp
salt & fresh ground black pepper - or to taste

Step-By-Step

1Boil your pasta, drain
2While Pasta is cooking, add butter and oil to a large skillet. Saute the broccoli, onions, garlic and mushrooms, just until tender, stirring occasionally.
3Add the cream once veggies are tender. Simmer for a few minutes or until the cream starts to thicken some.
4Add the cheeses, salt,pepper and fresh parsley if using. Stir until the cheese is completely melted.
5Drain linguine and toss with sauce. I don't rinse pasta, so the sauce adheres a bit better.
6Serve immediately. Sprinkle with some parsley and extra Parmesan cheese.

I served with a tossed salad and some crusty Italian bread.
