Here's our vegetarian play on the classic Bolognese pasta dish. We used precut mushrooms to make it a quick dinner, but a mixture of gourmet mushrooms would be a decadent variation. Just don't forget parmesan cheese for the top.
12 ounces spaghetti
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 small onion, chopped
1 large garlic clove, minced
2 pkgs. (8 oz. each) sliced mushrooms
2 tablespoons tomato paste
1 can (14 oz.) diced tomatoes
1 tablespoon chopped fresh rosemary leaves
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
1 tablespoon chopped fresh oregano leaves
Shaved parmesan cheese
How to Make It
Cook pasta according to package directions, drain, and spoon into a serving bowl.
While pasta is cooking, heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Cook onion and garlic until softened, about 5 minutes. Add mushrooms and cook until starting to brown, about 10 minutes. Add tomato paste, diced tomatoes, rosemary, salt, and pepper. Simmer 10 minutes.
Serve pasta topped with sauce and oregano. Serve shaved parmesan on the side.
We really liked this pasta sauce! It was really fast to put together and it was especially nice that the sauce cooked while the spaghetti boiled. The fresh herbs really made the dish. We'll make this one again, for sure; next time I'll probably double the sauce so there is more for leftovers.
