Take: enough pasta for 2-3 people; some olive oil; one onion; 2-3 cloves of garlic; a couple of handfuls of mushrooms; Worcestershire sauce; black pepper; a good dollop of double cream; and some milk if necessary.

1. Set the pasta to cook in a pan of boiling water.
2. Meanwhile, peel and chop the onion and garlic and fry them gently in the oil.
3. While the onion and garlic are getting started, finely slice the mushrooms, then add them to the pan with some extra oil if need be. Add the Worcestershire sauce and black pepper and turn up the heat.
4. Stir the mixture until the mushrooms start to look fried, then add the cream.
5. By now the pasta should be about cooked. Drain it thoroughly and add it to the creamy mushroom mixture, stirring gently to combine all the ingredients. If need be add more cream and/or milk till you get something that looks yummy.
6. Serve with parmesan and black pepper.

Makes enough for 2-3 people, which in our house means me and Baby M with seconds all round. (Pasta is the one thing she will always have seconds of!)

You probably already know this, but Worcestershire sauce has anchovies in it. If this bothers you, get a veggie alternative (available from your local health food store!)
