Add mince, cook, breaking up mince with a wooden spoon, until mince changes colour. Add tomatoes and bring to the boil. Reduce heat to low. Simmer, uncovered for 20 minutes or until thickened. Stir in basil and season.
Meanwhile, cook pasta in a saucepan of boiling salted water following packet instructions. Drain and return to pan. Stir in mushroom sauce, parmesan, and extra basil. Serve.
