Pappardelle with Mushrooms, Basil & Chilli
This quick vegetarian dish is so tasty and uses creme fraiche instead cream so it is that bit lower in fat and so better for you and your family.
It is important that you saute the mushrooms enough to release the flavours which will make the dish extremely tasty. You can also add finely diced peppers if you want to get more goodness into the dish.
Pappardelle similar to tagliatelle only it is 2 or 3 times wider depending on the brand you use. Please don’t use a cheap pasta for a dish like this as it will ruin it. Look for a pasta that contains eggs. Barrilla is a good brand that most supermarkets stock. DeCecco is one of my favourite brands but is hard to find at times.
If in Athlone look in Behans veg shop as I know they do one of the best ranges of DeCecco stuff I have seen outside of a specialist Italian shop. Some SuperValu stores stock it but it can be hit and miss. I know the one in Bandon does. Use tagliatelle if you can’t find pappardelle.
