Angel Hair Pasta With Brie Sauce, Mushrooms, Spinach, and Onions

Ingredients

  1. 12 ounces angel hair pasta
    1 tablespoon olive oil
    1 pound button mushrooms, thinly sliced
    1 small red onion, sliced
    1/2 cup dry white wine
    kosher salt and black pepper
    8 ounces brie, cut into 1-inch pieces
    4 cups baby spinach

Directions

  1. Heat the oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat.
  2. Add the mushrooms and onion and cook, tossing occasionally, until the mushrooms begin to release their juices, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta according to the package directions. Reserve ½ cup of the cooking water, drain the pasta, and return it to the pot.
  4. Add the wine, ½ teaspoon salt, and ¼ teaspoon pepper and cook until the mushrooms begin to brown, 5 to 6 minutes.
  5. Add the spinach, brie, and reserved cooking water to the mushrooms and onion mixture until the brie melts and spinach wilts. Stir the mixture into with pasta until evenly coated.

Serves 4-6.
