    Info4YourLife's Note:

    My dad has always believed in the importance of using real ingredients in the kitchen, no matter what the dish; so if you want high quality taste, use high quality ingredients. Using real butter and real cream is essential to this dish!

    Units: US | Metric

    Directions:

    1. 1
      • Soak the dried porcini mushrooms in warm water for 30 minutes.
    2. 2
      • Clean and dry the crimini mushrooms. Chop mushrooms into large enough pieces that they can be found in the sauce (avoid chopping them too finely). Place into a bowl.
    3. 3
      • Finely chop a handful of fresh parsley.
    4. 4
      • Gently squeeze water from the porcini mushrooms, and collect 4-5 oz of the resulting mushroom juice; don't use the grit in the bottom of the bowl! (You could also strain with a cheese cloth.).
    5. 5
      • Coarsely chop the soaked porcini mushrooms.
    6. 6
      • Finely chop ½ of a small onion.
    7. 7
      • Put on a big pot of water to boil – add a tablespoon of salt when the water starts simmering.
    8. 8
      • Set the table. Make it look pretty.
    9. 9
      • Melt butter in the pan on medium heat, bringing it to a sizzle.
    10. 10
      • Add onions, frying them until golden in colour – add the mushrooms, and bring the mixture to a high temperature. Allow this to cook for about 8 minutes, stirring regularly.
    11. 11
      • Add 3 pinches of parsley, and the mushroom juice (about 1 cup), chicken stock (1 cup – this could be substituted for vegetable stock, if you prefer), and cream (1 ½ cups).
    12. 12
      • Stir the sauce, and reduce to medium heat.
    13. 13
      • Add pepper to taste (or QB!).
    14. 14
      • Let the sauce simmer for a few minutes once the cream has been added; it may look like a lot of sauce in comparison to the amount of pasta you're using, but the pasta will soak up some of the sauce.
    15. 15
      • Add pasta to boiling water, stir regularly to ensure it doesn't stick (for this quantity of fresh pasta, this takes approximately 5-7 minutes to reach el dente).
    16. 16
      • Strain the pasta and add to sauce in a serving bowl. Garnish pasta with fresh parsley, and add grated parmesan to taste.
    17. 17
      For best results, enjoy with loved ones, and follow with espresso & a delicious homemade dessert. Buon appetito!
