1/4 cup of extra virgin olive oil

1 shallot, minced

1/2 cup good dijon mustard

1 tsp coarse ground black pepper

pinch of kosher salt

2 Crowns of Broccoli, cut into bite size flowerettes

1 lb of white mushrooms, cut into quarters

1 lb of pasta

1. Thoroughly mix butter, olive oil, shallot, mustard, pepper and salt into a paste in a serving bowl. Set aside.

2. Brown mushrooms in a bit of olive oil.  Set aside to cool, then add them to the serving bowl.

3. Bring a large pot of well salted water to a boil.  Add pasta.  When the pasta has only a couple minutes left to cook, add the broccoli.

4. Drain the cooked pasta and broccoli and toss with the mushrooms and sauce.  Serve.

For a healthier version, try substituting up to 3/4 of the stick of butter with 6 additional tablespoons of olive oil.  You want to keep some butter to give the sauce body.
