Whole Wheat Linguine with Mushrooms, Ricotta, and Lemon, Take 2

I tried the recipe again, this time using shiitake mushrooms in the place of the green beans.  Certainly nowhere near as colorful as a photo.

Unfortunately, it wasn't as flavorful either.  The shiitakes added a woody flavor to an already woody dish.  It really made me appreciate what green beans added to the dish.  I think if I added button mushrooms rather than shiitakes it could add a brighter flavor.  It will be something to try.
