Step by step recipe

Stage 1 - 10 min.
Pasta with mushrooms
Prepare and cut into small 250 g mushrooms pieces.

Stage 2 - 5 min.
Pasta with mushrooms
Peel 2 shallots and chop.

Stage 3 - 2 min.
Pasta with mushrooms
Pour 3 tablespoons olive oil into a large saucepan on high heat.

When hot, add the chopped shallot, salt and pepper and cook for 1 or 2 minutes without colouring.

Stage 4 - 5 min.
Pasta with mushrooms
Then add the mushrooms, mix well and sauter for a few minutes, but do not salt, otherwise the mushrooms will give off a lot of water.

Stage 5 - 5 min.
Pasta with mushrooms
Add 200 ml liquid cream, mix well, then turn down the heat and leave to reduce slightly,.

Stage 6 - 6 min.
Pasta with mushrooms
Meanwhile, cook the pasta in boiling salted water.

Stage 7 - 2 min.
Pasta with mushrooms
Drain thoroughly...

Stage 8 - 2 min.
Pasta with mushrooms
... before adding the creamy mushroom sauce.

Mix well, add a few chopped parsley leaves and turn off the heat.

Stage 9
Pasta with mushrooms
Serve without delay.
For a more pronounced mushroom flavour, add half a packet of dried mushroom soup at the same time as the cream. If you do this, there is no need to leave the sauce to reduce as it will thicken rapidly.

If you use button mushrooms, do take care not to overcook them, as they tend to give off a lot of water at the least provocation (this is why we don't salt them before cooking).
Several days in the fridge, covered with plastic film. Can be reheated.
Home made.

Hamburgers don't have to be the greasy flabby things you find in fast-food outlets, well-made they can be excellent. It's a very convivial recipe as everything goes on the table, and everyone assembles their own burger according to personal taste.
