Kinda fancy. Seriously easy.
1 package thin spaghetti
1 package mushrooms sliced
1 teaspoon flour
1 cup vegetable broth
1 cup white wine
2 shallots sliced thin (if you don't have shallots then you can use onion and some fresh garlic)
1 Tablespoon fresh or 1 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and Pepper
Get your pasta started and then start sauteing the mushrooms and shallots in a little bit of olive oil. Season with thyme, salt and pepper and when they are nicely browned, sprinkle with flour then add the broth and wine. Let that reduce to half and by that time your pasta should be done. Drain it well and then add it directly into the saute pan, keep cooking while the pasta begins to absorb the broth and wine. When it is absorbed it is finished.
Serve with a nice green salad, fresh baguette and if you want to really fancy it up, this chocolate cake for dessert.
My total for the week, $22.71
I have things in the pantry and freezer that I really want to use up by the end of the month so I'm keeping the shopping light. I suppose that is why my pantry looks so bare all the time. I only like to buy what I will use fairly quickly. If I run out of anything I'll let you know. I also bought 3 random items...a spray nozzle for the hose, a 3 pronged weeder and a eye shadow compact to test out. I swear there isn't anything that store doesn't carry.
So that's it. Make nice today.
