Romanian Mushroom Paprikash

I usually wouldn't have potatoes and pasta together, but this is delicious!

1 pound button mushrooms or larger mushrooms, quartered
1 onion, peeled and finely chopped
2 tablespoons oil
1 cup fresh parsley, finely chopped
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 tablespoon paprika
1 tablespoon unbleached white flour
salt and pepper to taste
2 pounds white potatoes, peeled and chopped
1 pound elbow macaroni

Stir-fry mushrooms and onions with oil in a large frying pan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes. Add parsley, garlic, paprika, flour, salt and pepper to taste, and potatoes. Cover the ingredients with water and simmer 15 minutes in covered pan until potatoes are tender. Stir occasionally to prevent sticking.

Meanwhile, cook macaroni in water until tender. Drain and add to the mushroom/potato mixture. Serve warm.
