Ziti and Portobellos Preparation
*NOTE: This is the whispy stuff at the top of the stem. I don”t know what the proper term for it is so I just call it the whispy stuff. **NOTE: The original recipe used the Parmesan cheese to put on top when the pasta is plated and served. I omitted it completely. Chop the onions. In a large skillet, melt 1/2 tsp low fat margarine in 1/2 tsp olive oil. Add the onions, 1 tsp salt, 1 tsp sugar and cook over moderate heat, stirring frequently, until the onions are well browned, 18 – 25 minutes. Transfer the onions to a bowl. Meanwhile, stem 2 Portobello mushrooms. Halve the caps and slice them crosswise 1/4 thick. In the same skillet, melt 1 tsp low fat margarine in 1/2 tsp olive oil. Add the mushrooms and 1/2 tsp salt and cook over moderate heat, stirring occasionally, until tender and browned, about 5 minutes. Add another 1/2 tsp lowfat margarine (if needed) and 1/2 tsp olive oil (if needed) the thinly sliced fennel and cook for an additional 3 ~ 4 minutes. Add the reserved onions, chopped fresh parsley and fennel. Season with salt and pepper. In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta until al dente, about 13 minutes; reserve 1 C of the pasta water and drain the ziti. In a large bowl, toss the ziti with 1/4 – 1/2 C of the pasta water, the mushroom mixture, feta, Parmesan cheese. If the pasta seems dry, add more of the pasta water. Serve immediately, passing additional grated Parmesan (optional) at the table. I adjusted the original recipe a lot!! I think my version is incredibly good.
