Gavin's Mushroom Ragout

When I unexpectedly scored six pounds of mushrooms for a dollar at the big farmer's market, dinner plans changed to accommodate. I asked Gavin if he would like to have something with mushrooms, and he dictated this recipe, pausing to ask if we had each ingredient. (vegan)

In large skillet, sauté one medium chopped onion until soft. Add half a pound coarsely chopped mushrooms and one chopped sweet bell pepper, and cook until the onion is getting caramelized and the mushrooms are quite soft. Sprinkle on about ½ teaspoon salt. Add ½ cup blanched chopped tomatoes, and continue cooking until the liquid is evaporated.

This simple recipe works well as a sauce over pasta or polenta, and is easily doubled or tripled.

Hmmm. That would actually be http://familystylefood.com. Don't you hate it when you mis-type your own URL?
