Ingredients

Instructions

  • Peel the onion and cut it in half. Thinly slice each half. In a large frying pan, heat the olive oil and throw the onion in. Sauté on medium-high.
  • Meanwhile, wash and slice the mushrooms and add them to the pan. Cut the sun-dried tomatoes into strips and add them in. Stir in dried thyme. Saute everything for about 10 minutes (on high), stirring occasionally.
  • Meanwhile, bring a large pot of water to a boil, add salt and spaghetti. Cook them according to package instructions.
  • Pour the cream into the pan, stir well and let it cook for about 4 minutes or until thickens. At last, stir in finely chopped fresh parsley and taste. Add salt to your taste. Pour the sauce over drained spaghetti, mix well and serve.

Notes

  1. You can use any pasta shapes you have on hand. In general, count with about 3.5 ounces of dry pasta per person (for a main dish).
  2. I always use extra virgin olive oil but cooking olive oil can be also used as well as sunflower/vegetable oil.
  3. Salt – you will need some for the spaghetti. I use about 2-3 teaspoons for 2 quarts/2liters of water. The sauce should not need much salt but every person is different, so taste it and add some at the very end. I used regular table salt.
  4. This recipe can be easily doubled or halved.
