Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. Roughly chop tomato. Finely chop onion and garlic. Pick and roughly chop herbs. Thinly slice the mushrooms.
Cook linguine in the boiling water until 'al dente', 9 minutes. Reserve some pasta water (1/4 cup for 2 people / 1/2 cup for 4 people), then drain and return linguine to the saucepan. Drizzle with olive oil to prevent sticking.
TIP: 'Al dente' pasta is cooked through but still slightly firm in the centre.
While the pasta is cooking, heat a large frying pan over medium-high heat with the butter and a drizzle of olive oil. Cook mushrooms, onion and herbs, stirring, until tender, 4-5 minutes. Add garlic and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 1 minute.
Add longlife cream (see ingredients), vegetable stock powder and reserved pasta water to the mushrooms. Stir to combine and simmer until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes.
Remove frying pan from heat, then add cooked linguine, the pepper and 1/2 the grated Parmesan cheese. Gently toss to combine and season with salt and pepper. Set aside. In a medium bowl, combine a drizzle of balsamic vinegar and olive oil, then season to taste. Add salad leaves and tomato. Toss to coat.
TIP: Seasoning is key in this dish, so add more salt depending on taste.
TIP: Add less pepper to the pasta if you're not a fan!
Divide creamy mushroom and herb linguine between bowls. Top with remaining Parmesan cheese. Serve with leafy tomato salad.
