Pappardelle Alla Casa Mia

Posted on June 19, 2010


250g of Pappardelle
10 Cherry Tomatoes
5 Garlic Cloves
125g Exotic Mushrooms
1 Handfuls of Baby Spinach
2 Tbsp Virgin Olive Oil
1/2 Tsp of Chilli Flakes

These are rather like broad tagliatelle and I prepared the dish like this…
Roast about 10 cherry tomatoes cut in half, in olive oil with 5 garlic cloves and a sprinkle of dried chilli for twenty minutes. Halfway through the roasting, add some small whole mushrooms. I used oyster, buna-shimeji and shiro-shimeji varieties. Meanwhile bring some water to the boil, add salt and the pappardelle. After 5 minutes, add a handful of baby spinach leaves and cook for a further 6 minutes.
Serve the pasta with the roasted, tomatoes, garlic and mushrooms.
Total preparation and cooking time 25 minutes.

Buon appetito!

The lighting was overcast daylight (the best diffuser) through my kitchen window.
