Test Kitchen #55 ~ Summer Spaghetti

If you’ve been around here for long you may have noticed that recipes are either titled “Test Kitchen” or “Pinterest Test Kitchen” obviously showing whether the recipe came from my boards or some other non-internet way. (I know, I know this may surprise our younger friends but once upon a time recipes came from family, friends or neighbors or the occasional cookbook/magazine.)

One of my pet peeves is repinning a pin that doesn’t work properly and this recipe was one of those. There was enough written in the comments though that I had the gist of the recipe so I kept it. I made this the first time a few weeks backs as a vegetarian option for someone at our teacher luncheon but everyone who tried it gave it a thumbs up. I made it at home last week and everyone loved it so it’s definitely a keeper.

What you’ll need:
1 package angel hair pasta, prepared as directed
8 ox package of fresh mushrooms (Next time I will use two…we like mushrooms and the ratio was a little off    with just one.)
1 medium onion chopped
2 heaping TBS of minced garlic
tomato of choice (We used three good sized romas)
1/3 cup of olive oil
4 oz feta cheese
cooking onions mushrooms summer spaghetti
What you’ll do:
Saute the mushrooms, garlic, and onions in the olive oil. 
Add the tomatoes for the last two minutes.
Toss with your prepared pasta.
Sprinkle in the feta and toss again right before serving.
Season to taste. (I added Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.)

Instead of feta cheese you could use fresh parmesan or maybe even some Asiago cheese. You could probably add in fresh baby spinach too. My husband suggested the addition of grilled chicken which sounds pretty good too.

No matter whether you follow this recipe as is or get a little adventurous I’m sure you’ll love it’s light flavor. Pair it with a nice crisp salad and a crusty loaf of bread and you have the perfect summer dinner.
