We love mushrooms so much, we're giving you two kinds in this meal: your workaday standard creminis and somewhat-exotic shiitakes. These umami vessels are joined by healthy kale, savory sun-dried tomatoes, and herbaceous, flavor-eous pesto. It's all twirled together with pasta that makes for an easy-peasy, maximum flavor meal just when you need it.
