Creamy Mushroom Pasta  Recipes

Ingredients :

2 ounces

1 pound



2 tablespoons

1/2 cup

dried mushrooms, such as shiitake

long, thin pasta, such as fettuccine or spaghetti

small onion

cloves garlic

olive oil

light cream

salt and pepper

Parmesan cheese

Method :

Bring 2 cups of water to a boil in a bowl or Pyrex measuring cup in the microwave, about 3 minutes. Add mushrooms and let steep on the counter for 20 minutes. At the same time, bring a large quantity of salted water for the pasta to boil on top of the stove. When the water boils, add the pasta. Dice the onion and mince the garlic. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic and sauté for 2-3 minutes until they're slightly softened. After the dried mushrooms have steeped, pour the mixture through a strainer lined with a paper towel, reserving the strained liquid into a small bowl or Pyrex measuring cup. Pick off and discard the stems, which are woody, and chop the mushrooms.

Add the mushrooms and the strained soaking liquid to the skillet, and bring the mixture to a boil. Simmer for 5 minutes until the sauce is slightly reduced. Pour in the cream and heat through. Season with salt and pepper. Drain the pasta and place it in a large bowl. Pour the sauce over it, add a generous quantity of Parmesan, and toss well to combine. Serve immediately.
