  Dried porcini mushrooms 3 Tablespoon, crumbled
  Boiling water 1⁄4 Cup (4 tbs)
  Chopped onions 1 Cup (16 tbs)
  Olive oil 2 Tablespoon
  Sliced fresh mushrooms 2 Cup (32 tbs)
  Chopped fresh marjoram/1 teaspoon dried 1 Tablespoon
  Fresh sage/2 teaspoons dried 4 Teaspoon, thinly sliced
  Salt 1 Dash
  Spaghetti/Linguini 1⁄2 Pound
  Unbleached white flour 1 Tablespoon
  Dry red wine 2⁄3 Cup (10.67 tbs)
  Soy sauce 1 Tablespoon
  Grated parmesan cheese/Grated romano cheese 1 Ounce
  Ground black pepper To Taste

In a small heatproof bowl, cover the porcini mushrooms with the boiling water and set aside.
Bring a large covered pot of water to a rapid boil.
While the water heats, saute the onions in the olive oil in a heavy nonreactive skillet or saucepan for 10 minutes or until translucent.
Add the fresh mushrooms and the marjoram, sage, and a dash of salt.
Continue to saute, stirring often.
When the water boils, stir in the pasta, cover, and return to a boil.
Then uncover the pot, and cook until the pasta is al dente.
Meanwhile, drain the porcini mushrooms, reserving the liquid.
Thoroughly rinse the porcini to remove any grit.
Strain the reserved liquid through a paper coffee filter or cheesecloth.
When the sauteing mushrooms begin to soften, add the porcini.
Stir in the flour and then the strained porcini liquid, the wine, and the soy sauce.
Simmer on medium-high heat, stirring, until the sauce thickens.
Serve the drained pasta in warmed bowls, topped with the sauce, Parmesan or Romano cheese, and black pepper.
