  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 tsp toasted sesame oil

  1. Cook pasta.  Drain pasta through a sieve over a bowl; reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water.

  3. While mushrooms and pasta are cooking heat a large skillet over medium-low heat. Add both oils to pan; swirl to coat. Add garlic; cook 2 minutes or until very fragrant and tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in remaining 1/4 teaspoon salt and tomatoes; cook 3 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in reserved pasta water; bring to a boil. Add cream cheese; stir until smooth. Add pasta, mushrooms, and red pepper; cook 3 minutes or until pasta is al dente, tossing to coat.
