Fried Pasta

7 oz. pasta, small shape
olive oil
3 T. cooking wine, or chicken broth
more chicken broth
mushrooms to taste
grated cheese

Brown raw pasta 7 - 8 minutes in olive oil until unevenly toased. Gemelli or Rotini work well because of their many ridges. Add your favorite cooking wine or broth and simmer, stirring until pan is almost dry. Add chicken broth to almost cover pasta and simmer, covered, until al dente -- almost crunchy -- ten minutes or less. Uncover and boil off excess liquid. Add mushrooms sautéed in butter. Top with freshly ground black pepper and grated cheese.
