The flavor in this easy pasta comes in large part from Crimini mushrooms and toasted pine nuts, subtly influenced by just a bit of Basil and Black Pepper oil. You may be asking why we use the essential oils in this recipe when the plant and spice are both so readily available in the store. The answer is simple: for their internal benefits. The Basil essential oil supports your nervous system and cardiovascular health, while Black Pepper essential oil can help support health circulation and contains important antioxidants.* As an added bonus, if made with egg-free noodles this dish makes a great vegan meal.
