Pappardelle With Portabella Mushrooms, Arugula, Pine Nuts

"Talk about comfort food, stop you're here! I use this recipe a lot, especially when I'm expecting guests for dinner. I make my own pasta, usually in the afternoon of the day my guests are expected. Locatelli is a delicious cheese, but if you're having trouble finding it, just go with a piece of Parmesan that you can create curls with. I also interchange the arugula with spinach. Both are fine. As for the pappardell, it is a wide pasta, looks sort of like lasagna, but don't use that it's too thick. If you don't make your own Pappardelle, and can't find it in your stores, just go with a wide noodle shape. It's so good, any shape is going to be great. Just improvise!"

Ready In:




  • Preheat the oven to 475°F.
  • Roast the mushroom with the butter, garlic and salt and pepper to taste until tender, about 15 minutes. Remove from the oven and slice thinly.
  • Cook the fresh pasta in boiling, salted water until as dente, about 3 minutes.
  • Heat the olive oil in a large akillet over high heat. Add the roasted mushrooms and stir for 1 to 2 minutes. Add the arugula and more oil, if necessary, and cook until wilted, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Add a splash of pasta water to the skillet to create a sauce. Transfer the pasta to warm pasta bowls or serving plates, sprinkle with the pine nuts and cheese shavings and serve at once.

I would like to welcome you to my recipes. I have been with since 10/05. My beloved husband, Tom, passed away 3 years ago. My world stopped. It's taken me all this time to find my way back to life without him. I have been so blessed to have found my second, once in a lifetime. I've met an amazing man who is so good to me. We moved from Las Vegas, Nevada to Bullhead City, Az. in February, and we love it here. I have worked at Bally's and Paris hotel.casinos, in Las Vegas. I have seen some very famous entertainers, including Liza Minnelli, Penn and Teller, Ray Liotta, Dr. J (Julius Erving), Frank Sinatra and his wife Barbara Marx. and many, many more. Cooking is my passion, and I am slowly, but surely beginning to venture into the world of baking. To me, cooking is so much easier because baking is so much more exact. I love to make Italian and Mexican food the best, followed by Chinese and last, but by far the least, good old American food! How can you beat chicken fried steak, mashed potatoes and gravy?? I love to find several recipes and put my own spin on them and create a new recipe.
