Light and tasty pasta despite having a cream sauce. The lemon zest gives it a fresh feel and Prosciutto garnish gives it a nice salty flavour. Really basic pasta with a classic kind of feel.
Simple shiitake pasta.
Fresh Pasta | I made mine prior and froze it | it’s a roasted purple pepper and pink peppercorn fettuccine
Shiitake Mushrooms (I prefer fresh)
garlic cloves crushed
Creme or Creme fraiche
Fresh Ground Pepper
Sliced Prosciutto as garnish
- Cook pasta is salted water – remember fresh pasta cooks fast.
- Combine olive oil, mushrooms, garlic, and a bit of pasta water to cook for 10 min.
- Drain pasta set aside with a bit of olive oil
- Remove fry pan from heat | Add lemon zest, chapped parsley, some pasta water (1/4 C), and cream to mushrooms and stir until mixed and cream has bubbled a bit. Add pasta and stir and plate.
