Portobello Fettuccine

I was supposed to cook and serve this dish for Dylan's garden party but I totally forgot about it till the guests started arriving :s Anyway it's a really simple dish and I love the simple ingredients plus it is vegetarian yet still packs a punch from the portobello mushrooms so do give it a try!

200g of fettuccine pasta (or amount enough for 2)
4 big portobello mushrooms or 6 small ones
1 big onion
1 ripe tomato or a few dollops of tomato sauce
5 tablespoons of balsamic vinegar
salt and black pepper to taste
sprinkle of dried basil
chilli flakes (optional)

Cook the fettuccine as per instructions on pack and coat with some olive oil after draining. Set aside.
Chop the mushrooms and tomato coarsly and the onion finely.
Heat some olive oil in a medium pan and fry the onion till slightly brown and fragrant.
Add in the mushrooms and vinegar and stir for a few minutes till the vinegar starts to caramelise.
Toss in the tomato and let it cook before including the pasta.
Mix well.
Sprinkle in the basil and chilli flakes before serving.
Enjoy! :)
