Pasta with mushrooms in spicy tomato sauce

Apparently I have come into a period, where I am making various pasta dishes in spicy tomato sauce (I recently made this spaghetti arrabbiata), perhaps it is due to, that on cold Winter days it can be good to eat some food with a certain level of spiciness.

My mother would probably decide this pasta sauce as spicy, I would call it delicate in it´s spiciness, so you could consider to increase the level of chili seeds from 1 teaspoon to 1½ teaspoon.

This pasta dish is very filling, which I think come the tomato sauce, being filled in fried mushrooms. So all in all it is a dish, what I would to cook again.

I found the recipe in the weekly magazine "Søndag" (issue 52/2018). I have made the following modifications. I decided to use a combination of both onion and garlic. And I decided to add in the chili seeds, when I started the cooking time of the tomato sauce instead of first adding the chili seeds just before serving the sauce.

It is not a quick fix to too cook this sauce, as it takes minimum 20 minutes to cook the pasta sauce as well as frying the fresh mushrooms.
