We always have canned tomatoes and dried pasta on hand so I made a simple tomato sauce using the mushrooms, red onion and garlic and served it over angel hair with grated cheese and a dollop of ricotta.
I also made garlic bread using parsley (that stuff keeps for ages in the fridge if wrapped in a dry paper towel and stored in a plastic bag), garlic and butter:
