My daughter simply loves pasta. It is what she turns to when she is cramming for an exam as well as when she is celebrating the end of an exam.

October 25th happens to be World Pasta Day and my Mom’s birthday. My daughter suggests we combine the two and celebrate her grandma’s birthday with a pasta cake! By the way, have you ever tried making a pasta cake? I haven’t ever tried making one myself, but the pasta cakes on the interwebs have me intrigued… October 25th is just ten days away so I better pick up some more Barilla® and start practicing, eh?

For a pasta lover like my daughter, October 25th isn’t the only day to rejoice because October happens to be National Pasta Month. Yup, that means all sorts of pasta creations all month long!

We are huge fans of Barilla® and the other day she brought home some Barilla® Collezione Bucatini from Kroger and tossed it with an avocado pesto sauce and we enjoyed her Gaucesto Pasta for dinner! However, as I am the one with the blog, today I don’t have that recipe. Instead I have this Roasted Mushroom Sundried Tomato Pasta recipe to share.

When I make a pasta dish on a weeknight, I like to stay away from heavy sauces, and opt for something light and lively! So I try to add as much flavor to it as I can and use a premium pasta. So, when I made this Roasted Mushroom Sundried Tomato Pasta, I chose to add grated garlic, sundried tomatoes, roasted mushrooms, parsley, basil, and onion and use Barilla® Collezione Orecchiette.

Easy Roasted Mushroom Sundried Tomato Pasta

Getting back to this Roasted Mushroom Sundried Tomato Pasta, the most time consuming part of this recipe was pan roasting the mushrooms. I chose to roast them with a little bit of oil over a low/medium flame. And, it took them about 30 minutes or so to go from fresh mushrooms to squelchy mushrooms to crispy mushrooms. If you are not a fan of squelchy mushrooms that almost feel like raw fish, then you’ve gotta try roasting mushrooms before you totally write them off.

While the mushrooms were roasting, I was also boiling some Barilla® Collezione Orecchiette. And, in another pan, I was also sauteing a chopped onion. I grated the garlic cloves into my pan with the onion sauteing in it. For me, grating garlic seems to add that garlic flavor to every nook and cranny of a dish. I also added in some sundried tomatoes with some of the liquid that came with the sundried tomato and a bit of parsley and basil into this easy dish.

In all honesty, I’m not quite comfortable calling this a recipe. This is so so super easy to make. And, some combination of these 8 ingredients are probably already out there somewhere on the interwebs. However, this is a delicious dish that might appear to be simple, but tastes like a gourmet treat which my daughter and I enjoy often so I figured I’d share it on here with y’all with it being National Pasta Month. I am hoping y’all grab a few packages of Barilla® Collezione pasta and give this Roasted Mushroom Sundried Tomato Pasta a try and enjoy it as much as we do.

  • 2 tbsp oil
  • 16 oz white mushrooms
  • 1 red onion
  • 4 cloves garlic
  • 1/4 cup sundried tomatoes
  • 1 tbsp liquid from sundried tomatoes
  • 2 tsp chopped dried parsley
  • 1 1/2 tsp dried basil
  • 1 cup Barilla® Collezione Orecchiette


  • Add 1 tbsp oil to a pan along with the mushrooms. Turn stove onto a low-medium setting and let mushrooms pan roast for about 15 minutes. Stir slightly and let roast uncovered again until the liquid starts to dissipate - it took me about 20-25 minutes. Then stir mushrooms often so they brown and crisp on both sides. When done, set aside.
  • While the mushrooms are roasting, add Barilla® Collezione Orecchiette to boiling water and prepare according to package directions.
  • Also, while mushrooms are roasting and Barilla® Collezione Orecchiette is boiling, chop the onion.
  • Then add the other 1 tbsp oil to another pan and add in the onion. Let onion saute, stirring often. When onion is translucent (about 7-10 minutes), using a grater, carefully grate the garlic cloves into the sauteing onion.
  • Add in the sundried tomatoes and liquid from sundried tomatoes and stir.
  • Also add in the parsley and basil and stir.
  • When Barilla® Collezione Orecchiette is al dente, add it to the onion, garlic, sundried tomato mixture and mix well until all ingredients are well incorporated.
  • Season with salt and pepper if desired.
  • When mushrooms are crispy, add them to the pasta mix and enjoy immediately.


Wait until you are ready to eat before adding the mushrooms into the pasta mix otherwise they will absorb some of the liquid and loose their crispness.

  1. […] is a favorite in our home. Over the years, we have enjoyed Barilla® Collezione Orecchiette with mushrooms and sundried tomatoes. And, when Barilla® launched a gluten-free line, we were quick to try their gluten-free penne […]

  2. Jac says:

    You mention in the recipe to add the sundried tomatoes and their liquid, but you fail to explain where that liquid comes from. You did not mention how to rehydrate the tomatoes.

  3. We always have a box of orecchiette in our pantry and your pasta dish sounds good.

  4. This looks like the perfect dinner! Totally adding it to the weekly dinner menu and I love Barilla! keep sharing

  5. Those roasted mushrooms look so tasty. I could faceplant into this tasty pasta dish right now! Thanks for this delightful recipe Shashi. Oh and I’ll be sure to make something with pasta for World Pasta Day on 25th October. Thanks for letting me know about that Shashi, I had no idea!

  6. allie says:

    What a great dish! We love mushrooms any way we can get them, raw, squelchy and crispy. What a gorgeous flavorful pasta dish, Shashi. I’m with your daughter, pasta is the way to go. Was unaware of these new Barilla pastas – I look forward to trying them soon. XO

  7. I think it’s pasta day every day, lol. Seriously, though, LOVES me some pasta! And I would definitely call this a recipe, and a yummy one at that! Love mushrooms, love sun-dried tomatoes so this is definitely my kinda dish. A big bowl of this, crusty bread and maybe a little vino and I’m set 😉 Have a great week, Shashi! XOXO

  8. Demeter says:

    I love how sometimes the best dishes are the simplest because they really allow the flavors to shine! Looks amazing!

  9. I am a huge pasta fan! You can get all fancy with it, or you can just go something simple…but a good pasta recipe is the very definition of comfort food. I hear ya on the ‘squelchy’ mushrooms. I’ve gotten better, but I still don’t love that texture. But roasted?! You’ve got so much flavor going on in this dish, Shashi…in fact, I bet this recipe would lead to a surefire A+ on Lil S’s exam! 🙂

  10. What a great weeknight dinner recipe! My fiance would go crazy for all those mushrooms!

  11. We also use Barilla pasta at our house. Its the best. I haven’t tried the Collezione collection yet but have heard great things. Excited to add this recipe to our list for pasta month.

  14. I simply love how you always make the everyday meal so delicious, moreish and healthy as well!
