I love the nutty-woodsy, and meaty taste of porcini mushrooms. One of my favorite preparations is using them in pasta. The fettucine made this dish extra rich and luxurious. —Ilona Oppenheim

What You'll Need
  • 1 cup dried porcini mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 4 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • 1 cup chicken broth
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 10 sage leaves
  • 8 ounces tagliatelli pasta
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • parmesan cheese
  1. Place mushrooms in a medium sized bowl and cover with 2 cups of water. Soak for 20 minutes. Drain reserving the liquid.
  2. Heat olive oil on in a large sautee pan on medium heat and add the garlic. Remove the garlic and discard. Add the mushrooms and cook for about 4 minutes until they are soft. Increase the temperature to high and add the wine and sage. Cook until the alcohol evaporates- about 3 minutes.
  3. Add the broth, 1 cup of the reserved mushroom water and the salt. Cook until he liquid is reduced in half- about 10-15 minutes.
  4. In a large pot of boiling, salted water, cook the fettucini until just done. Drain and toss with the mushroom mixture.
  5. Serve with parmesan cheese grated on top.

I wanted a recipe that put the porcini front and center and this did the trick. The directions don't indicate when to use the butter--I used it alongside the oil. I also used 3/4 ts. dried sage because I had none fresh on hand. It's simple and rich. I look forward to making it again.
