Wild Mushroom Pasta

I'm a big fan of Good Eats and Alton Brown. I've learned a lot from him. So when he suggested that dried exotic mushrooms were an umani flavor bomb I took to amazon to procure some. 

When you only cook with and eat plants, sources of deep and real flavor are important. 

His advice was spot on. I got a dried exotic mushroom mix and used it in my pressure cooker to create a sauce/broth for pasta and even though I forgot to add olive oil, it still had tons of flavor. 
After the pressure cook was finished I added the oil I forgot and cooked it off for a  few minutes. I then stirred it into my precooked pasta. Let it rest 5 minutes to tighten up. It was a perfect sauce to enrobe my pasta. . 

Dried exotic mushrooms are not cheap. But if you don't eat/cook with animal products, they feel like a bargain. There's so much flavor to be had. It's worth it and then some. 

Ingredients

2 ounces dried fancy mushroom mix, big pieces broken or diced

Something to Chew On

Dear People @ Stride Gum,

Your gum really doesn't seem to last all that long.

Perhaps I'm chewing it incorrectly.

Please advise.

P.S. I like the added vitamin B12. I was going to buy trident, but then I noticed your stride gum package stated it was fortified with vitamins B6 and B12. So I bought your gum instead even though it was 30 cents more for the three pack.

P.P.S. I'm curious what made you decide to add those two vitamins in particular. Why not C or E. People seem to like those a lot. Were you consciously targetting vegetarians and vegans or was it just a happy accident?

P.P.P.S. Where's the goat? I've been waiting for the goat. I like goats.
