Ingredients

    1 Whole Onion, cut into strips
    2 tbsp Olive Oil
    2 cups Fresh Mushrooms, sliced (I like a combo of Shiitake and Baby Bella)
    1.25 c. Fat Free Half and Half
    1 clove Garlic, minced
    12 oz. Whole Wheat penne
    2 cups fresh Baby Spinach
    1 tbsp. Balsamic Vinegar

    Salt, to taste
    Black pepper, to taste
    Red Pepper Flakes, to taste

Directions

1. In a large saucepan, cook onion and olive oil on medium-low heat. Continue cooking for 30-40 minutes, adding a little water to prevent burning, if necessary.

2. When onions are golden brown and sticky, turn heat to medium and add mushrooms and 2 tbsp water. Add salt to taste and saute until mushrooms are soft.

3. Add 1.25 cups fat-free half and half and garlic. Season with salt, black pepper, and cayenne pepper to taste. Bring to a simmer.

4. Meanwhile, cook penne according to package instructions. Drain.

5. Add pasta back to pot and pour in cream sauce. Over medium-low heat, add spinach and 1 tbsp balsamic vinegar. Stir to wilt spinach and serve immediately.
