Spaghetti with Fresh Button Mushrooms

I think everybody knows how to cook spaghetti, right? This is our favorite, spaghetti with fresh mushrooms.
My kids don't like to eat onions, but they can take it in this spaghetti. So, I purposely add more onions in this spaghetti.

Ingredients:
1/2 pct of spaghetti noodles
1 tbsp butter
3 tbsp vegetable oil/olive oil
2 onions, chopped
3 cloves garlic chopped
2 large tomatoes, chopped
4 tbsp tomato sauce
150 gm fresh button mushrooms, chopped
50 ml chicken stock
some pasta spice
Salt to taste  (optional)
some grated parmesan cheese


Method:
Heat 3 tbsp oil, add in chopped onions and garlic.
Add spices,fry until fragrant and soft.
Add in chopped tomatoes,  tomato sauce,button mushrooms and chicken stock.
Bring to boil. Turn down the heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.Add in salt to taste. 
Bring about 3 litres of water to boil.
Add in 1 tbsp salt.
Cook spaghetti for about 10 minutes until al dente.
Drain the spaghetti and toss in butter till well coated.
Transfer to plates, spoon on the sauce.
Sprinkle some parmesan cheese.Serve.

* if don't have chicken stock, can substitute with chicken/ikan bilis cube.

One kid loves this, the other hates anything with tomato sauce.
Pening if I want to cook this for dinner, LOL.
I add ground oregano to it, heightens up the tomato flavour incredibly.

Lena, the flower is made from the skin of tomato.
Use knife to peel the tomato skin, don't let it break, peel as long as you like, then roll it.That's all :)
