Simple, earthy pasta

Whatever you’re doing right now (because I know you’re probably multitasking while you read this), stop and make this deceivingly easy, hearty meal. Serves two, unless you can’t stop eating it…

1/2 lb whole wheat fusilli
1/2 sweet/yellow onion, sliced
1/2 lb cremini mushrooms, sliced
4 tbsp butter
2 tbsp fresh thyme, stemmed
2 cloves garlic, minced
4 oz crumbled goat cheese
Salt & pepper to taste

Melt half the butter in a skillet over medium-low heat and prep your pasta. Sauté onions until soft and golden. Add half the remaining butter and the mushrooms and continue cooking gently until the mushrooms turn dark brown. Add thyme, garlic, salt and pepper and lower heat. When the pasta is done to your liking, drain and add it to the skillet with the remaining butter. Toss with goat cheese until melted. I enjoyed this immensely with Sam Adams Black Lager but I’m willing to bet money a Chardonnay or Pinot noir would also be irresistible accompaniment.

…sorry for the lack of photo, I inhaled this!!
