Indulge in a bowl of Creamy Mushroom Pappardelle, a luscious pasta dish that is pure comfort food. Brimming with the robust flavors of mushrooms and the rich creaminess of Parmigiano Reggiano, this simple yet luxurious meal comes together in just 20 minutes, perfect for weeknight dinners or when you crave a touch of gourmet at home.
This vegetarian recipe serves 2-3 people. It begins with sautéing a mixture of butter, shallot, and garlic in a large skillet over medium-low heat, infusing the pan with a beautiful base of flavors. Mushrooms, processed to a fine chop in a food processor, are then added to the skillet, intensifying the flavor profile with their earthy notes. Parsley, thyme, and salt are stirred in, letting the herbs subtly infuse the mushrooms as they cook.
The sauce forms the heart of this dish – a blend of heavy cream whisked together with corn starch for a bit of thickening. This creamy mixture is added to the skillet, cooking down into a velvety sauce that carries the mushroom and herb flavors beautifully.
The Parmigiano Reggiano is stirred into the sauce next, melting into the creamy base and bringing a deep, savory richness that pairs perfectly with the mushrooms.
As the sauce simmers, bionaturae pappardelle is cooked according to package instructions. The broad, flat noodles are ideal for this recipe, their wide surface perfect for clinging onto the luxurious sauce.
The cooked pasta is then tossed directly into the skillet, ensuring that every strand is well-coated with the creamy mushroom sauce. A brief sauté on medium-low heat allows the pasta to absorb the flavors, and then it’s ready to serve.
A final flourish of grated cheese on top adds another layer of flavor and a beautiful finishing touch. Enjoy this Creamy Mushroom Pappardelle as it is, or pair with a green salad or some crusty bread for a satisfying, restaurant-quality meal right at home.
