Pasta with mushrooms in pesto sauce recipe

This dish can be ready in 10 to 15 minutes, provided that you have soaked the dried mushrooms in advance. You can substitute the dried mushrooms with regular mushrooms but the taste will be far from the one when using dried one. You can also use a ready made pesto sauce, but it is very easy to make your own, and it will taste much better for sure.
