A simple saute of onion, garlic, basil, mushrooms and tomatoes is enlivened with a mixed bag of frozen vegetables. Cook for a scant 10 minutes and serve over spaghetti. Add a grating of Parmesan cheese and you have a very veggie treat!
INGREDIENTS (for 4 servings):
- 6 ounces spaghetti
- 3 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 small onion, chopped

In a large pot with boiling salted water cook spaghetti pasta until al dente. Drain.
Meanwhile, in a large skillet heat olive oil over medium heat. Add onion, garlic, basil, sliced mushrooms, and chopped tomatoes and cook for 5 minutes.
