Spaghetti with mushrooms and a dash of cream.

A very simple recipe to produce a quite filling main course for 2 people. It can easily be increased by doubling or trebling the amounts of ingredients in the recipe.

Step 1

1 tablespoon of vegetable oil
1 brown onion
Step 2
1 x 200gm packet of cup mushrooms - (Fig 1) - (other mushrooms can ofcourse be added, and this will add to the flavour of the total dish)
