Day 3 - Pasta with stuff

Think no money until next payday because of multiple bills and direct debits all going out at once. And then the quarterly health insurance going out too. Ouch. It becomes a what is in the cupboard dinner.

Take one packet of Barilla Tortollini (big penne)

Put a large saucepan full of water on the stove and bring to the boil.
In a frypan heat a little olive oil
Add a red onion, finely chopped, two cloves of garlic, finely chopped/crushed* and the stalks of one bunch of broccolini, chopped.
Saute until soft and the onion starting to colour.
Add a glass of white wine and reduce a little.
Add some finely chopped mushrooms and two tomatoes, seeded and chopped.
Add 1 300ml carton of pouring cream, salt, pepper and torn up basil leaves
Bring to the boil and then reduce to a simmer
Cook pasta
Three minutes before it's done, add the tops of the broccolini
Drain pasta and broccolini
Add to sauce, let sit covered in the saucepan for a minute or three
