"Everyday Cooking"- Spaghetti with Mushrooms

Looking for something simple for dinner??? Oh ....I get lazy many times and want to cook something quick  n' easy. If 'M' has to cook something quick and easy.... many a times its either 'Upma' or 'Rice+daal" or "Daal and bread" and the easiest of all....call ***-***-PAPA ie order pizza from Papa Johns!!! How easy is that! Hahah! Apart from the joke....I really appreciate him taking over the kitchen and putting together a nice simple meal for us! The 'thought' counts....
 Last week we had pizza for dinner....so yesterday night when the BIG question came..'What to make for Dinner???' I quickly decided to make this 'Spaghetti with Mushrooms'.
2 handfull thin spaghetti
1 cup sliced mushrooms
1/2cup crushed tomatoes
1tsp crushed garlic
1/2tsp Italian seasoning
1/2tsp fresh/dried Basil
1/4tsp black pepper
1/4tsp red pepper flakes
1/4 cup Parmesan+ Romano cheese grated
1/2tsp sugar
olive oil
Cilantro/Parsley for garnishing

1) Cook the spaghetti in salted water till 'al dente'
2) Heat 2tsp olive oil, add crushed garlic.Fry for few seconds and add the sliced mushrooms.Fry till slightly browned.
3) Add the tomatoes, spices, salt, pepper  and sugar.Cook for 3-4 mins.
4) Drain the spaghetti well and all to the pan with tomato+ mushroom sauce.
5) Top with parmesan-romano cheese, red pepper flakes and parsley.And extra drizzle of olive oil if you like!
6) Serve hot !
Enjoy with hot Italian vegetable soup or a crunchy appetizer like Bruschetta.
