What you'll need
Olive oil, salt, balsamic vinegar, butter, parmesan to serve (optional)
1. Prepare ingredients
Thinly slice two shallots, one garlic clove and a small handful of fresh sage. Chop the mushrooms into 2cm pieces.
2. Cook shallots
Heat oil in a large pan over medium heat, add the shallots with a pinch of salt. Cook until soft.
3. Cook mushrooms
Add the mushrooms with a bit more salt and cook until they deepen in colour and become tender.
4. Prepare pasta
Boil a large pot of water. Add a few good pinches of salt and cook pasta until al dente. Keep 250ml of pasta water aside before draining.
5. Combine and build sauce
Add the sliced garlic and sage to the pan. Add 2 tablespoons of tomato paste, 1 teaspoon of balsamic vinegar, 2 tablespoons of butter and most of the pasta water you kept aside. Cook until the sauce thickens.
Toss your cooked pasta in with the sauce and shave parmesan over top to serve.
