I have just eaten pasta with a simple tomato and mushroom sauce.

It was absolutely delicious.

To make the sauce, I sautéed an onion with several cloves of garlic in some olive oil. I added a tin of chopped tomatoes, a handful of dried herbs, and a glass of red wine, and left it on the hob for three quarters of an hour or so. Then I added six sliced mushrooms, and left the lid off the pan so it the liquid would reduce.

I grated some grana padano over the pasta and sauce.

The whole was really delicious. It was surprising that something so simple could taste so good.

I can’t help thinking it must be something in the tin of tomatoes. This tin came from Tesco – a British supermarket – as opposed from Waitrose, where the last few tins I used came from. (Before that, the tin pretends to have come from Italy. I don’t know whether this is true or not.) This tasted much, much better than the last tomato and mushroom sauce I made. So, thank you, Tesco.
