Return the pan to medium-high heat. Cook, stirring constantly, for 5 minutes or until sauce comes to the boil. Stir in the mushrooms and onions. Cook for 2 minutes.


Drain the pasta and return to the hot saucepan. Add the mushroom mixture and cheese. Season with salt and pepper. Stir to combine. Spoon the pasta into the prepared dish. Top with breadcrumbs. Lightly spray the top with oil. Bake for 20 minutes or until golden and hot. Serve with salad or vegetables.
