Recipe Ingredients for pesto veggies

1 teaspoon olive oil
1 small red onion, in thinly sliced half moons
1/2 lb cremini mushrooms, sliced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon salt

Recipe Directions for pesto veggies

When the mushrooms have cooked down, add pasta to the pan, along with the pesto. Use a pasta spoon to stir and coat the linguine. Get everything good and mixed and the pesto heated through, about 3 minutes. The pesto should be relatively thick, but if it?s too thick (not spreading out and coating the pasta) add a few tablespoons of water. Taste for salt.
