3 Tbsp Extra-virgin olive oil
16 oz Sliced fresh mushrooms (2 8-oz containers)
2 medium or 1 large Onions, halved and thinly sliced
1 tsp Paprika
to taste Salt
to taste Freshly ground pepper
12 oz Whole-wheat spaghetti
⅓ cup Sour cream
2 tsp White wine vinegar
½ cup Fresh parsley, chopped
½ cup Fresh dill, chopped
¼ cup Chives, thinly sliced (about half of one bunch)
1.  Heat 1 tablespoon olive oil (1 tablespoon from total 3 tablespoons) in a large dutch oven or wide pot over medium-high heat.
2.  Add the mushrooms (16 oz) and cook, undisturbed, until they are lightly browned and they start to soften. this should take about 5 minutes.
3.  Stir the mixture well, then add the onions (2 medium or 1 large, halved and thinly sliced), paprika (1 teaspoon), remaining 2 tablespoons olive oil, salt to taste and a few grinds of pepper.
4.  Cook, stirring occasionally (more frequently toward the end).
5.  Continue until the onions are golden and very tender. this should take about 30 minutes. note: reduce the heat to medium during the last 10 minutes so the onions don't burn.
6.  Meanwhile, bring a large pot of well-salted water to a boil.
7.  Add the pasta (12 oz whole-wheat spaghetti) and cook as the label directs for al dente.
8.  Reserve 1 1/2 cups of the cooking water, then drain.
9.  Add the pasta, half of the reserved cooking water, sour cream (1/3 cup) and vinegar (2 teaspoons) to the mushroom-onion mixture.
10.  Toss the mixture until the pasta is well coated and slightly saucy. note: gradually add the remaining cooking water as needed.
11.  Add about half each of the parsley, dill and chives to the pasta and toss. season the mixture with salt and pepper to taste.
12.  Divide the mixture among bowls and top with the remaining parsley, dill and chives.
