Preparation – Cook your pasta in salted boiling water. Boil it until it is mostly cooked, and turn off the heat a few minutes before it fully cooks. Drain out the water, but save ¼ cup of the pasta water for later. Wash & slice the mushrooms. Chop your fresh herbs. In a pan / skillet, heat the olive oil on medium heat and in it, cook your mushrooms and herbs with some salt for 5 minutes. After the mushrooms are cooked and tender, turn your heat to low and add your greens and the lemon juice to it. Cook this for 2 minutes until the greens get cooked & wilted. Add your cheese to the pan and keep stirring until the cheese completely melts. Add your pasta to the mushrooms and top it off with some salt and pepper. Serve hot!
