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.

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

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.

Sardine Spaghetti

For those who love sardines ,you will love this spaghetti.I suggest not to sprinkle any cheese(as you can see in my photo, there's some parmesan cheese on top of it).For me, sardine and cheese , a weird combinations, but I don't know about you, different people different taste bud , right?Here's the recipe:

300gm spaghetti
10gm butter
2 onions , chopped
2 tomatoes,chopped
6-8 mushrooms
4 clove garlics, chopped
2 tbsp tomato sauce
1 medium can sardine,( weigh 230gm)
200ml water
Dash of black pepper
1tbsp sugar
2 tbsp olive oil/cooking oil

Soaked mushroom till soft, then sliced it.
Mashed the sardines.
Cook spaghetti in a boiling water for about 12 minutes, until cooked.
Heat olive oil, stir fry onions and garlic until fragrant.
Add in sliced mushrooms and stir fry till fragrant.
Add in chopped tomatoes and stir fry.
Add in sardine, tomato sauce and stir fry then add in water.Let it simmer for about 2-3 minutes.
Lastly add in sugar and black pepper.Serve with spaghetti.
When the spaghetti is done,drain the water, toss the butter into the spaghetti.

As you can see, I didn't use any salt, because the can sardine is salty enough for me.In this spaghetti, I used 2 onions and 2 tomatoes (my girls loves this spaghetti, so I purposely add more onions and tomatoes, hehehe).
