Pasta with Creamy Tomato Sauce

3-4 tablespoons olive oil
1/2 onion, chopped
1 red pepper, chopped
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1 package baby Bella mushrooms, quartered
1/3 cup white wine
1 can Italian diced tomatoes
3/4 cup half and half
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
rough chopped baby spinach
1/2 pound pasta

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Add chopped onions and pepper and saute 5 minutes.
Add garlic, mushrooms, wine, and tomatoes and cook 5 to 10 minutes more, until mushrooms start to soften.
Add half and half and simmer for another 5 minutes over low heat. Season with salt and pepper.
Remove from heat and stir in grated cheese. Serve over cooked pasta, with a handful of chopped spinach on top.

  1. OK... when are the classes going to start? tried to make this and not sure what I did wrong, but my sauce was runny and not that color. But good recipe if I could just get it right!
