Meatless Monday.....on Tuesday

have been on a major motivational rush today, so i stopped quickly to make something fast for dinner. it was based on this recipe from Everyday Food....but i didn't have all of the ingredients. i did, however, grab a package of mixed mushrooms at the grocery today, which made it super tasty.
now i must dash....before i start to procrastinate again.

started by melting a Tbs of butter and sauteing the onion (one small yellow onion) until soft. then you would add the white wine, if you have white wine.

buttons and bellas and oysters....oh, my!

at this point i added a bit of the pasta water (as well as the second Tbs of butter that should go in later) because, with the lack of wine, it was rather dry.

eyeballed the amount of ricotta-i used about 1/4 of a cup. another problem with not really following a recipe is guessing on amounts...i kept the butter the same, but the amount of mushrooms and ricotta was less than what is called for in the recipe.

added the lemon juice and a little more pasta water to thin it out.
looks nothing at all like the picture accompanying the recipe, indeed, it looks like a sloppy tuna noodle casserole. however, it tasted really, really good.
