- 3 onions
- 3 TBSP olive oil

- 1 TBSP olive oil
- 8 oz baby bella mushrooms

- 3 cups fresh baby spinach
- 2/3 cup heavy cream
- 1/4 cup milk

Step 1: Caramelized Onions
1 TBSP olive oil
3 onions sliced thin and then in half
pinch of salt
1 TBSP balsamic vinegar
Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil on high heat in a large skillet.
Add the sliced onions and cook on high heat
for about 10 minutes, constantly stirring with spatula.
The onions should start to brown, but without burning.
Reduce heat to medium and continue cooking onions
for 10 more minutes, stirring, as they brown even more.
At this point add just a pinch of salt over onions.
Continue cooking for 10 more minutes
on low heat, stirring occasionally.
Make sure onions don’t stick to the bottom of the pan or burn.
You should have cooked onions for a total of 30 minutes.
Remove from heat and sprinkle onions with
a small amount of balsamic vinegar to deglaze the pan.
Stir until the onions are coated.
Step 2: Mushrooms & Spinach
2 TBSP olive oil
8 oz baby bella mushrooms
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 cups fresh baby spinach
After you have started cooking onions, heat 2 tablespoons olive oil in another pan, and add sliced mushrooms and minced garlic.
Add a pinch of salt.
Reduce heat to medium-low and cook mushrooms and garlic
for about 20 minutes, occasionally stirring.
Add cooked mushrooms to the pan with caramelized onions,
add 3 cups of spinach and stir on low heat just until spinach wilts.
Step 3: 8oz Fettuccine–prepare and set aside
Step 4: Cream Sauce
2/3 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup milk
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
Add heavy cream, milk, Parmesan cheese
and stir over low heat until smooth and creamy.
Add in the prepared Fettuccine and gently stir until coated.
Step 5: To Serve:
