Meatless Monday: Pasta with Portobello Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions, and Goat Cheese

12

With a title like that, how could I not want to make this recipe when I first encountered it? Those ingredients pretty much scream “Elly!” Not to mention, they also tend to be in my kitchen at all times.

This is a perfect year-round vegetarian pasta dish that’s easy to make, hearty, and flavorful. This is definitely one of those dishes where the whole is greater than the sum of its parts. Just a few simple ingredients provide great earthiness and depth of flavor.

I altered the ingredient amounts a bit in this recipe, mainly to make it healthier (a  bit less fat, less pasta for the same amount of servings, etc.).  But I also added a little booze. 😀 I didn’t add peas to this when we had it for dinner, since we ate it with a salad, but I did add a small handful to my lunch leftovers.
