To make the strichetti, roll out the pasta on your pasta machine to the thinnest setting. Lay the sheet out on a cutting board and cut into 2-inch by 1-inch rectangles. Pinch the center of each rectangle to form a bow tie shape. Repeat this process until all the dough is used. Set aside and cover. Bring 6 quarts of water to boil add 2 tablespoons salt. Heat the butter and olive oil in a 12- to 14-inch skillet or saute pan. Saute the red onion over medium-high heat for 3 minutes, until softened but not browned. Add the mushroom pieces and saute 5 minutes longer until light and golden brown. Lower the heat to medium. Add rosemary leaves and simmer 5 minutes. Set aside. Drop the pasta into the boiling water and cook 1 minute, or until al dente. Cook longer if pasta had dried out. Drain pasta in colander over sink and add hot pasta to skillet and toss to blend over medium heat, about 1 minute. Add cheese and toss thoroughly to coat. Season with salt and pepper. Place in warm serving bowl and serve immediately.

This recipe yields 4 servings.
