While the dish is very quick and easy to make, it lacks a certain something to bring it all together. I added a generous of sauteed garlic (using cooking spray to keep down the calories) and some caramelised yellow onions (again done using cooking spray) - I also added brown crimini mushrooms to the white button mushrooms. If you use older mushrooms (mushrooms develop more flavour as they age) and then gently saute (to brown) them before adding them to the recipe - you will bring out the natural meaty flavours of the mushrooms...takes a bit longer but well worth the wait and effort.
Spaghetti with Mushroom Bolognese
From EatingWell: EatingWell Serves Two
Domestic white (or “button”) mushrooms stand in for the meat in this still-hearty variation of a classic sauce. Serve with a sprinkling of freshly grated Parmesan or a spoonful of part-skim ricotta cheese. Complete the meal with a crisp arugula salad.

I'm not sure I've ever made tomato sauce without garlic! But I made this as is (red onion instead of shallot) and it was tasty. Also used fire roasted tomatoes.
