Fettuccine with mushrooms, spinach & pecorino

Method

  • Soak the porcinis in warm water for 15-20 mins. Then drain well and finely chop, reserving the strained liquid.
  • Heat a little oil in a wok (or large deep heavy-bottomed pan) and gently sauté the onion and garlic until tender.
  • Add the button mushrooms with the porcinis and toss well for a few minutes until sealed, before adding the wine and reducing by half.
  • Then add the stock, cream, seasonings and about ¼ cup of the strained porcini liquid. Stir and cook to reduce quite heavily.
  • At the same time, cook the pasta in plenty of lightly salted, boiling water until al dente. Drain well.
  • Then add the pasta to the wok with the spinach and stir to wilt.
  • Serve the pasta in individual flat soup bowls with a decent amount of pecorino sprinkled on top and good crusty bread and extra pecorino in a small bowl on the side.
