Have you ever been in the situation to have only 30 minutes for preparing a decent dinner? I bet you did. I was there several times :).
I don’t know what saved you from the “situation” but for me one of the easy/quick – 30 minutes dinner is a variation of pasta and tomato sauce; of course with a vegetable addition, if on hand : mushrooms, artichoke, asparagus, capers, olives …whatever you like or have on cupboard.
So, this time I had : spaghettoni, mushroom-tomato sauce, fresh mushrooms !
Ingredients ( 3 servings )
- 1 package spaghettoni (they were called like that on the package – of course you can use any spaghetti or other pasta)
- 220 g white fresh mushrooms
- 1 cup tomato crushed
- 1 jar portobello mushroom sauce
- 2-3 garlic cloves
- 1 tbsp dried oregano
- extra virgin olive oil
- salt and black pepper to taste
Prepare the pasta after package information.
Mean time peal and cut the garlic. Wash and cut the mushroom ( as small or big you like them )
Drain the pasta and wash it in cool water.
In a large pan heat 3 tbsp of olive oil. Add the garlic and mushrooms and cook for about 5 minutes. Add the mushroom tomato sauce, crashed tomato and turn down the heat to low.
Season with salt and pepper and dried oregano and cook for 5 more minutes. Add the pasta and lightly toss them together.
Serve right away with fresh parmesan cheese on top… (this time I had to skip it because I didn’t have any at home 🙂 )
Bon Appetite !
