Angel Hair Pasta With Whipped Cream and Porcini

Here is a variation on the Frugal Gourmet's recipe. It is easy and less expensive than some of the alternative. You can find dried mushrooms from South America that are very good -- and much cheaper if you don't want the more expensive porcini mushrooms!

directions

  • Place the porcini in a small bowl and add 1/2 cup warm water. Allow to soak 45 minutes. Drain, reserving the liquid.
  • Heat a large frying pan. Add the oil and shallots and saute a minute. Add the fresh mushrooms and saute until tender.
  • Chop the porcini coarsely and add to the frying pan along with the reserved liquid. Simmer until most of the liquid is evaporated.
  • Bring a large pot of water to boil along with a pinch of salt.
  • In a separate bowl whip the cream until it holds soft peaks. Refrigerate the whipped cream until the pasta is cooked.
  • Cook the pasta in the boiling water until al dente. Drain well.
  • Return the drained pasta to the pot and add the mushroom mixture, cheese, whipped cream and salt and pepper to taste.
  • Using a large spatula fold all the ingredients together. Do this quickly, yet carefully, so the whipped cream doesn't collapse entirely.
  • Note: this looks beautiful with a dollop of the whipped cream on top of the pasta as a garnish.
