  1. Heat olive oil & butter in pan over medium heat. Sauté onion until lightly golden. Add mushrooms and continue browning. Add garlic and red pepper flakes for another 1 minute. Carefully add tomatoes – should boil vigorously – watch for splatters. Reduce heat and simmer for 10 minutes, while you cook pasta of choice.
  2. While pasta is draining, add basil, cream, and ½ cup of cheese and bring back up to temperature, without boiling. Taste again for salt & pepper.
  3. Serve over pasta, ravioli, or paillards of chicken, or seafood - sprinkle with remaining Parm. YUM-OH!
