Wheat Germ Pasta with Mushrooms

I picked up some wheat germ pasta at the store, not because I was planning a meal but because it was there and I had never tried it. After thinking about what the pasta might taste like I figured it would go well with onions and mushrooms so that is what I did. In the end the dish tasted ok but it really didn't look very good so it took a lot to get the kids to try it. They picked the pasta out and ate that and left the rest so that tells me to try the past again with another condiment

1 onion diced
1 package mushrooms, sliced
1 red pepper, diced
1/2 cup white wine
salt and pepper
olive oil
wheat germ pasta
chopped parsley

start the pasta cooking in a large pot of salted boiling water
caramelize onion in oil then add the mushrooms and brown them a little, add the peppers and seasoning. add in the wine and cooked pasta with a little pasta water to make a sauce. top with chopped parley
