5 by 7 on 140lbs Fabriano watercolor paper

I grew up eating this it's my mothers recipe. It's been a long time since Ive made it but painting the mushrooms reminded me of it and of sauted mushrooms and garlic.

Quick and Easy
Angel-hair Pasta with Mushroom Sauce

Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to boil over high heat... When the water reaches a full rolling boil put in:
8 ounces of angel hair pasta
Cook until just tender. (Follow the instructions on the package)
Drain the pasta and add to the sauce - mix well

Meanwhile prepare the sauce:
½ cup of onion, chopped fine
2 cloves of garlic, minced
½ cup celery, finely chopped
1-teaspoon olive oil
sauté the above ingredients, until they begin to soften in a heavy bottomed or cast iron fry pan

In a large bowl
1 can mushroom soup
1 can chopped olives
1 ½ teaspoon soy sauce
add the onion/celery mixture and the drained pasta, stir to blend

Garnish with
mushroom slices
fresh grated Parmesan or Romano cheese (optional)

These mushrooms look like I should grab a chopping board and a very sharp knife and slice them to garnish the pasta
