Tasty side - fried mushrooms and onions and sprinkled with a little Mozzarella cheese which melts with the heat of the dish. Can we have too many mushroom dishes to try?  Mushrooms and onions are a good combination and add cream and Mozzarella and you have a lovely dish with just enough creamy sauce.

Olive oil
1 cup chopped onion (250 mL)
2 tsp crushed garlic
1 lb sliced mushrooms (0.45 kg)
Seasoning salt, to taste
1 tsp dried parsley (5 mL)
1/2 tsp red pepper flakes, optional (2 mL)
1/4 tsp thyme (1 mL)
3/4 cup grated Mozzarella cheese, (175 mL)
1/3 cup heavy cream (75 mL)
Chopped green oni on or parsley
1/2 tsp paprika (2 mL)

In large nonstick frying pan, fry onions in a little olive oil over medium heat, until turning translucent. Towards the end of cooking, fry the garlic until turning brown.  Add a little extra oil and cook mushrooms along with the onions and garlic until browning about 5 to 7 minutes. Pour off any excess liquid. Add seasoning salt, parsley, red pepper flakes, if using, 1/2 cup (125 mL) Mozzarella cheese and cream.  Bring to the boil and simmer until liquid has reduced to your liking.

Pour mushroom mixture into casserole dish and top with 1/4 cup (60 mL) Mozzarella cheese.  Sprinkle with green onions or parsley and paprika.  Allow the heat of the casserole dish to melt the Mozzarella cheese.  Serve.
