Mushrooms in Tomato Sauce

I’m back in Shanghai, the holiday has passed by so fast I didn’t even realized I was about to leave home until I had to pack my stuff and head to the airport.

It is always so hard leaving!

Since I got back I haven’t had time to spend in the kitchen, so I am posting a recipe I made while I was in Italy. It is an easy, tasty mushroom side dish. You can even use it as a dressing for your pasta. DELICIOUS!

It’s simple comfort food, the best!

Ingredients (serves 4):

  • 500 g mushrooms
  • 1 clove garlic
  • 3 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
  • 5 ripe tomatoes, peeled and cut into cubes
  • salt
  • fresh chopped parsley

Wash and cut the mushroom. For this recipe you need this kind of wide, flat mushrooms which I have no idea how they are called in English

In a skillet heat up some oil and saute’ the garlic

until it gets a nice golden brown color

add the peeled and chopped tomatoes and cook them on medium-high heat for about 10 minutes. Add 1/2 tsp of salt

Add in the mushroom, stir around. Adjust with more salt

Cover with a lid and let simmer for about 20 minutes or until the mushrooms are cooked

Turn off the heat and sprinkle fresh chopped parsely

Stir around

Serve warm as a side dish

You could even add some chilly powder and use this sauce for dressing your pasta!
