Pasta with porcini mushrooms

Pasta with mushrooms. A simple recipe, the scent of autumn and Woods. The pasta with porcini mushrooms, they are spaghetti, fettuccine or noodles, It is a great classic of the autumn kitchen and I can not forget the scent of wild mushrooms Etna, the steaming plate of pasta in front of the snow and lava, spicy and topped with pecorino canestrato siciliano. Weekends in Randazzo were a riot of dishes with mushrooms: pasta, the soup, Fried mushrooms, those mushrooms. Here in Rome I find Tuscan porcini mushrooms or market of Calabria and then, Since we are finally in season, Here is the recipe. In

The end of the porcini mushroom pasta recipe is also found video recipe, that is also on my You Tube Channel to which you can subscribe with one click to receive all my videos. Do not forget to have a look, since we are in the right season, all myRECIPES WITH PUMPKIN and myRECIPES WITH MUSHROOMS.

A single secret: drain the pasta al dente and long mantecarla with mushrooms and l & #8217; cooking water, to obtain a thick flavorful but not oily emulsion. Obviously in my pasta with porcini mushrooms can not miss chili pepper, garlic and parsley, but not too much because it tastes intrusive. I bake the dough in a vegetable broth in which I put some mushroom stem, to make it more intense, but you can also boil it in water just. Finally, lots of black pepper and pecorino, of course if you like. Null & #8217; else, Why is the star of this dish was the mushroom!


A little note about pasta: Here the use of durum wheat spaghetti, which remain al dente like it, but if you had time they are ideal egg noodles or homemade noodles, to blanch a minute just before mixing (If you opt for pasta all & #8217; egg, I recommend you add a knob of butter to the sauce). I never recommend using the fettuccine or noodles for more than 4 people, because they are difficult to manage in both the baking flavoring amalgam #8217 &;, often longer.


Print This


  • 350 grams durum wheat spaghetti (or noodles or egg noodles if you prefer)
  • 600 grams of mushrooms
  • fresh parsley, to taste
  • a chili pepper
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • very little white wine
  • extra virgin olive oil as required
  • salt to taste
  • Pdo pecorino cheese, to taste (If you like)


To prepare the pasta with porcini mushrooms must first clean the mushrooms: eliminate all traces of earth from mushrooms, so you have to gently scraping with a paring knife (small knife) or l & #8217; brush for food. Do not wash, otherwise dampening and become mush. Cut the mushrooms into thin slices and set aside.

Finely chop the parsley and cut tiny slices of red pepper. In a pan, pour a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, uniting & #8217; garlic and let it Brown lightly on low heat. Add the red pepper and a little parsley. Turn up the heat and add the mushrooms. Skip the mushrooms and sprinkle with very little white wine. Add salt and cook for two to three minutes. Then pepper and join the rest of the chopped parsley. Turn off the heat and set aside. Cooking should be responsive, and because the fungi should not lose their texture and because they will cook again while mixing with the dough.

Boil pasta ( I recommend spaghetti, fettuccine or noodles cones porcini mushrooms) in salted water (or vegetable stock) and drain it al dente; set aside a cup of the cooking water. Stir the pasta into the pan with the mushrooms, add a little 'extra virgin olive oil. Add as much cooking water how much is needed to emulsify the dressing, It should be creamy but should not be oily and greasy.

Serve immediately pasta with porcini mushrooms. Personally, do not give up ever in a sprinkling of grated pecorino cheese Dop, better if a Sicilian canestrato cheese, but do as favorite. Have a good day!

THE PAIRING: Passobianco, Vintage 2015, produced by cellar Passopisciaro, belonging to the company Wines Felicia. These vineyards are cultivated on a white wine #8217; & Etna, fragrant and lively, obtained by vinification of Chardonnay, The aromatic profile of this wine goes well with the aromas of mushrooms. On the palate, its freshness balance the slight oiliness of porcini mushrooms in olive oil #8217; & cued.

I saw the picture of spaghetti and thought “But how , No egg noodles?”.
Then I read the article and I gave myself a rap on the knuckles.
Simply “wickedly delicious” made with mushrooms di Cesarò (collected personally by me), you are likely to know.
Hello, ADA.

Hi Ferdinand! I know very well Cesarò and mushrooms, My uncle has operated for years Villa Miraglia. As you may have guessed I like pasta very al dente, so I preferred to use the spaghetti. I love the egg noodles, But if I make at home and, Obviously cooked very little. Now, you know as well as cooking are difficult to manage, especially for more than 3-4 people, and how easy it is to serve a plate of noodles a little’ sheets, scondite and stuck with each other, so I prefer to always recommend the easy way out and, then give the alternatives for the better. Say hello to my Sicily. ADA
