Mediterranean Pasta

1 (8 ounce) package uncooked spaghetti
1 cup sun-dried tomatoes, packed without oil
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup chopped red onion
6 cloves garlic, sliced
1 cup sliced fresh mushrooms
1/2 cup sliced green olives
1/2 cup Italian seasoned bread crumbs
freshly ground black pepper to taste

Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain. Place sun-dried tomatoes into a small pot, and add water to cover. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat, and cook for about 5 minutes, or until tender. Drain, chop, and set aside.

Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium-low heat. Fry onion and garlic in the oil until onions are transparent, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and sun-dried tomatoes; cook over low heat for about 5 minutes. Throw in the spaghetti, and toss to coat. Mix in the green olives. Serve hot with bread crumbs and lots of black pepper on top.
