Section 1: Ingredients

  • 12 oz. pasta (such as linguine, fettuccine, or spaghetti)
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced
  • 8 oz. mushrooms, sliced (such as cremini or white button)
  • 1/2 cup sun-dried tomatoes, chopped

  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste

Optional toppings: chopped fresh basil or parsley, red pepper flakes, additional Parmesan cheese

Section 2: Instructions

  1. In a large pot or deep skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and cook until softened, about 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add the garlic and cook for an additional 1 minute, until fragrant.
  3. Stir in the mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes, and cook for 5-6 minutes until the mushrooms have released their moisture and started to brown.
