Recipe Name: Angel Hair Pasta With Whipped Cream And Porcini Submitted by: Administrator
Source: Source Description:

Base: Pasta Comments:
Preparation Time:
Number of Servings: 4

1/2 Ounce(s) Dried porcini mushrooms *
3 Tablespoon(s) Olive oil
1/2 Cup(s) Chopped shallots
3/4 Pound(s) Fresh mushrooms, chopped
1/2 Pint(s) 1 cup whipping cream
3/4 Cup(s) Angel hair pasta
1/4 Cup(s) Parmesan cheese
Pinch(s) Salt and pepper to taste
Place the porcini in a small bowl and and 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 a 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 of the ingredients together. Do this quickly,
yet carefully, so that the whipped cream doesn't collapse entirely.
You may want to save a bit of the whipped cream to dollop on top of
the pasta as a garnish. Serve immediately. Or other dried mushrooms
