Bring a kettle of water to the boil. Bring a large saucepan of salted water to the boil. In a heatproof jug or bowl, combine the boiling water from the kettle (3/4 cup for 2 people / 1 1/2 cups for 4 people) and dried porcini mushrooms. Set aside.

In a large frying pan, heat 1/2 the butter and a drizzle of olive oil over a medium-high heat. When the butter has melted, add the sliced mushrooms and a pinch of salt and pepper and cook, stirring occasionally, until golden and browned, 5-7 minutes. Season with a pinch of salt and pepper. While the mushrooms are cooking, finely chop the brown onion. Finely chop the celery. Finely chop the garlic (or use a garlic press). Grate the carrot (unpeeled).

Add the spaghetti to the saucepan of boiling water and cook until ‘al dente’, 9 minutes. Drain the pasta, reserving some pasta water (1/2 cup for 2 people / 1 cup for 4 people), then drizzle with olive oil to prevent sticking.

Add a drizzle of olive oil to the mushrooms. Add the onion, carrot and celery and cook until softened, 6-7 minutes. Add the garlic and tomato paste and cook until fragrant, 1 minute. Add the passata, porcini mushrooms (roughly chop any big pieces), the salt, brown sugar and some reserved pasta water (1/4 cup for 2 people / 1/2 cup for 4 people). Add the porcini soaking liquid (leave any gritty bits at the bottom of the jug). Reduce the heat to medium and simmer until thickened, 5 minutes.
