Spaghetti with sauce of mushrooms is another quick and easy recipe to make. It takes 30-45 minutes of preparation and cooking time combined. This simple spaghetti sauce with mushrooms is made with olive oil, garlic, mushrooms, tomatoes and basic seasoning you most likely already have in you kitchen cabinets.
- 2-3 tablespoons of olive oil
- 2-3 cloves of garlic, minced
- 8 ounces (227grams) sliced fresh mushrooms
- 1 can (28 ounces/800mL) tomatoes or about the same amount of fresh, piled tomatoes
- dash of salt
- dash of fresh black pepper
- dash of oregano
- dash of basil
Spaghetti sauce recipe serves 3-4 people so it should be enough for around 500-600 grams of spaghetti.
If you have purchased whole tomatoes in a can, just blend them around not more then a few seconds. You want to keep some thickness so, do not liquify it to much. If you got fresh tomatoes, peel them first.
In a medium size skillet pour olive oil and heat it over medium heat, then add garlic. When garlic turns slightly yellow (in around 1 minute of time) add mushrooms. Keep that on a medium heat for about 4 or 5 minutes, or until mushroom juice partially evaporates, stirring it occasionally.
Then, add tomatoes and all of the seasoning. Once it starts boiling, cover it and continue cooking on a low to medium heat, stirring occasionally, for around 10-15 minutes.
Serve it warm poured over cooked spaghetti, maybe meat balls, and seasoned with a spoon or two of grated Parmesan cheese.
Tip: If you find tomato sauce too acidic, next time add a spoon or two of sugar at the same time as other seasonings.
