  1. Fry the onions and garlic in olive oil until fragrant.
  2. Add the chopped tomatoes, zucchini and eggplant.

  5. Season to taste.
  6. Strain the tomato mixture- do not reserve the liquid, and transfer to a blender.
  7. Add the chopped basil to the blender and blend until the sauce is smooth.
  8. Return the sauce to the pot, and add the sliced mushrooms.
  9. Simmer until the mushrooms are cooked.
