Spaghetti is one of my favorite Italian dishes! Sometimes I like to play with the recipes and add a little fire to the sauce to really give it a different feel.
1 Tblspn Butter or Tblsn Coconut Oil
1 Yellow Onion or Vivaldi if you can find them – finely diced
2 Garlic Cloves – Minced
4-5 Roma Tomatoes – diced
4 Crimini Mushrooms – Sliced Thin
4 Button Mushroom – Sliced Thin
1 Tablespoon chopped parsley
1 teaspoon Red Pepper Flakes – add more if you like more fire
1/4 cup heavy cream
Sea Salt & Pepper
Few Basil Leaves- Chopped
Bay Leaf if you like a sweetness in your sauce
Heat pan with Butter or Oil
Add Onion, Saute for a few minutes until soft
Add Garlic and saute for a minute more
Add Tomatoes, fresh and canned, mushrooms, olives, red pepper flakes, parsley, salt and pepper to taste, add bay leaf
Bring to a boil, then simmer for a few hours or at least one uncovered
Add heavy cream on simmer, mix well
Add a little fresh Basil on top and sprinkle with fresh Parmesan Cheese!
*Oh and hey, Don’t forget to make your spaghetti noodles about 15 minutes before done. Salt your water while water is heating up to a rolling boil. Add your noodles, turn down flame to medium high-ish – separate noodles with a fork and wait alloted time on package!
You may add any meat that lights your fire! We are meatless in this recipe!
Voila! Enjoy with a salad, french bread and a nice glass of Cabarnet!
