Mushroom Bolognese Penne Pasta

Life has been terribly busy this year. So busy it is, that I can no longer recall the exact time I last cooked at home. Saying that I really missed this usual hobby is beyond a restrained statement. Luckily, the husband celebrated his birthday recently and that gave me enough reason to reunite with my pots and pans. Without actual plannning, I prepared this pasta dish to add into our dinner repertoire last weekend. 
Mushroom Bolognese Penne Pasta

What you need : 250 g penne pasta cooked according to package directions, 1 med sized onion (finely chopped), 1 250 ml jar of bolognese sauce, 1 small can of condensed cream of garlic mushroom, 1/2 tsp ground-dry basil leaves, 2 tbsps olive oil, 250g ground beef, salt & pepper to taste, 1 cup of pasta water reserve, grated parmesan cheese for topping

How to make : Cook pasta according to package directions, drain and set aside. Take out 1 cup of pasta water reserve, set aside. Heat olive oil in a sauce pan. Saute onions and beef until tender. Add the cream of mushroom and bolognese sauce. Stir well. Allow to boil and simmer for 5 minutes. Season with salt, pepper and ground basil leaves.
