1 Tbsp. olive oil
1/2 cup chopped onion (1 medium)
3 cloves garlic, minced
12 oz. fresh button mushrooms, halved or quartered (4-1/2 cups)

1/2 cup finely shredded Parmesan cheese (2 oz.)
3 cup hot cooked pasta
Snipped fresh parsley (optional)


1. In a large skillet heat butter and oil over medium heat. Add onion and garlic. Cook for 4 to 5 minutes or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in mushrooms, thyme, 1/2 teaspoon salt, and 1/4 teaspoon ground black pepper. Cook 4 to 5 minutes more or until mushrooms are tender and lightly browned, stirring occasionally. Add cream. Bring just to boiling; reduce heat. Boil gently, uncovered, for 2 to 3 minutes or until thickened. Stir in cheese until melted.

2. To serve, place hot cooked pasta in serving bowl. Spoon mushroom sauce over pasta. Sprinkle with parsley. Makes 4 servings.

My husband and I loved this recipe. We are already talking about when we can make it again. Obviously this can't be a weekly dish for us with the cream and butter, but it will be great for special occasions.
