Tomato Sauce with Mushrooms and Spinach When we think of spaghetti sauce we usually imagine a rich and thick sauce that coats the pasta well.  There are times when I enjoy a light broth-like sauce with lots of flavor.  I made some for my daughter the other day and she enjoyed it so much that she had it for lunch and for dinner.  I just made a different vegetable as a side dish for each meal and added a different salad.

Tomato Sauce with Mushrooms and Spinach

I  make this sauce when I am in a hurry and need a 20 minute meal on the table.  It's an ideal dish for that and i usuall make enough to save for another meal.

Instructions

Heat the oil in a pan and add the onions. When the onions are 1/2 done, add the button mushrooms cut in half and add all the herbs and chili flakes. When the onions clear, add the tomatoes and 1/2 cup of water and bring to boil and simmer covered for 5 minutes. Add the spinach and cover again for 2 or three minutes. Stir and season with salt and pepper to taste.  Add 1/2 cup of milk or half and half for a richer broth.  Serve over your favorite pasta and sprinkle any grated or shredded cheese on top.
