    This is a very plain and simple vegetarian pasta recipe that was born out of the imagination of 3 hungry friends, who thought adding a bit of port in the pasta sauce wouldn't hurt.

    Ingredients
    Serves: 4 

    • 2 tablespoons of olive oil
    • 2 onions, sliced
    • 3 cloves of garlic, minced or pressed
    • 250g button mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
    • 250g brown mushrooms, cleaned and sliced
    • 2 medium zucchini, thinly sliced
    • 1 (400g) tin whole tomatoes
    • 1 (500g) packet of fresh tagliatelle
    • a bunch of basil
    • a few sprigs of fresh thyme
    • a few sprigs of fresh rosemary
    • 1/4 teaspoon dried oregano
    • 2 teaspoons of Worcestershire sauce
    • 250ml port
    • Freshly grated Parmesan cheese

    Directions
    Preparation:15min  ›  Cook:45min  ›  Ready in:1hour 

    1. Heat the oil in a large pot and cook the onions over a medium heat until golden brown. Add the garlic, mushrooms and zucchini; cook until soft.
    2. Pour in tomatoes and cut them up roughly in the saucepan with wooden spoon. Cover and simmer for 5-10 minutes. Add herbs, Worcestershire sauce and port.
    3. Leave to simmer for 45 minutes, or until sauce has thickened.
    4. After half an hour, bring 2 litres of lightly salted water to a boil. When boiling, add the fresh pasta and cook uncovered for 2-3 min.
    5. Drain pasta and serve hot, covered with the sauce. Leave large bowl of freshly roughly grated parmesan on table for people to sprinkle on top.
