On My Hearth: Portobello Mushroom Ragu

In the mood for some healthier Italian? I absolutely adore mushrooms, especially portobello, so this recipe is right up my alley! I'm adding a bag of fresh spinach that's languishing in the fridge and doubling the amount of tomatoes to make a larger batch. Yummy!

Portobello Mushroom Ragu

-------- ------------ --------------------------------
2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
1 medium red onion -- diced
2 cloves garlic -- minced
2 6 oz Portobello mushroom caps -- trimmed and diced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
15 ounces canned diced tomatoes
Salt and Pepper
13 1/4 ounces whole wheat pasta

Heat olive oil in a large skillet and saute the onions until lightly browned, 3-4 minutes.

Add garlic and saute for 1 minute, stir in mushrooms and thyme. Continue to cook over high heat until the mushrooms have softened and given off their juice 2-3 minutes.

Add tomatoes and cook until the mixture is thick, about 10 minutes. Season with salt and pepper and serve over whole wheat pasta.
