Was today a good day? Work was okay, the family was okay, lunch and breakfast… just okay. How do we kick this day up to at least “good?” This super-umami bonanza will upgrade your day game and then some. Two kinds of mushrooms, nutty Parmesan, and earthy miso and all the comforting pasta that can fit in a bowl. This meal elevates your day to good whether or not there's smog, barking from the dog, or breakfast cooked for you without hog.
Tip: Why remove the stems of shiitake? Those stems are too woody and fibrous to eat.

Before You Cook
Cook the Pasta
Once water is boiling, add pasta and cook until al dente, 12-13 minutes.
Reserve 1 cup pasta cooking water. Drain pasta in a colander and set aside.
While pasta cooks, prepare ingredients.
Prepare the Ingredients
Stem shiitake mushrooms and cut caps into ¼" slices. Discard stems.
Cut cremini mushrooms into ¼" slices.
Trim and thinly slice green onions, keeping white and green portions separate.
Cook the Mushrooms
Place a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat and add 2 tsp. olive oil.
Add cremini and shiitake mushrooms and ¼ tsp. salt to hot pan and stir occasionally until softened, 4-5 minutes.
Add white portions of green onions and cook until softened, 1-2 minutes.
Add garlic and cook until aromatic, 1 minute.
Make the Sauce
Add miso to pan and stir until completely combined, 30-60 seconds.
Add butter, pasta, and ¼ cup pasta cooking water and stir until combined and butter is melted.
