Mamma Flora’s Tip: Drain the pasta directly into the sauce few minuted before the cooking time displayed on the package, toss until al dente

Method:

  • In the meantime brush off any dirt from the mushrooms with a pastry brush or a dish towel, and slice the mushrooms (pic above)
  • Put the butter and the garlic in a pan on medium heat, as soon as the butter is frying add the mushrooms and a pinch of salt. Let them fry for 5min and then cover with a lid for 5min more, stir from time to time
  • As soon as the water is boiling, add the pappardelle and the salt. Check the cooking time and drain the pasta 2-3min before the cooking time. Drain the pasta into the pan with mushrooms, add the cream and continue the cook until al dente, coat the pappardelle evenly
