Mushroom Pasta

Can someone please explain to me how cheese, mushrooms and pasta are not aphrodisiacs?  I mean really, something this delicious is bound to make you a little hot under the collar.  Or is that just me?

Anyways, way back a million years ago when Seth and I were young and just starting to date, I made this dish for him.  It was a knock out then and still is now.

Shiitake Angel Hair Pasta
Yikes, that picture is a bit yellow...
6 oz. angel hair pasta
6 oz. shiitake mushrooms, sliced (any mixture of mushrooms will work)
1 clove garlic, minced
1/2 onion, chopped
1/4 c. dry, white wine
1 tbs. olive oil
1/4 c. chicken broth
1/2 c. heavy cream
salt and pepper to taste
2 tbs. parmesan cheese
2 tbs. fresh, chopped parsley

Saute onion and garlic over medium heat until translucent and aromatic, add mushrooms and saute until the start to brown, add stock and wine and cook until mixture is reduced by 1/2.  Add cream and reduce to desired thickness.  Adjust seasoning.
Meanwhile, cook pasta in a large pot of boiling salty water.
Drain pasta and toss with sauce, top with parmesan and parsley
