So yesterday, when I went searching through the fridges, freezers and pantries for Leftover Wednesday, I found a wonderful surprise!
Ziti with Portobello Mushrooms, Caramelized Onions and Goat Cheese now! I immediately went to the computer, looked up the other ingredients needed and compared that to what I had: butter, olive oil, 3 onions, salt, sugar, pepper, parsley, 1 lb portobellos, ziti, goat cheese, parmesan. Hm. I'm allergic to olive oil and was a tad short on most of the rest. But, I can be creative and this is what I pulled together:
|Saute onions in a little butter and Wegman's Basting Oil with a pinch of salt and a pinch of sugar for 15 minutes.|
|While the onions were caramelizing, I sliced up the cooked lasagna noodles.|
|I removed the onions from the pan and added the sliced shrooms. There was no need to add more butter nor oil. While they cooked for approx 10 minutes, I boiled some water and dropped the noodles in it for a few minutes to heat up.|
|Once the shrooms were done, I added everything to the pan - onions, 1 wedge of Laughing Cow Garlic and Herb cheese, the noodles, parmesan cheese and a little pasta water. See? My food pictures do not look good.|
It took longer than I thought it would for the Laughing Cow to melt and the noodles were in the pan so long they appear to have absorbed some of the mushroom's color. Next time, I will remove the shrooms from the pan, add the cheese and some pasta water only and let those two melt together before adding the rest of the ingredients. Regardless of how it looked it tasted wonderful!
