Another little recipe to inspire you for Valentines day. This is a very simple dish to prepare and cook, and does not require any special culinary skills!
Chef Paul Collins says: ‘Pappardelle of Shallots’ We say: ‘Shallot and mushroom pasta’. If the way to a person’s heart is through their stomach this dish is bound to win you some love.
Preparation time: 20 minutes
Cooking time: 15 minutes
4 Echalion (banana) shallots
150g pappardelle pasta
100g wild mushrooms
10g French tarragon
25ml olive oil
What to do:
Peel and dice the shallots into a medium size dice.
Place a large pan of salted water on the stove for the pasta and bring to the boil.
Sauté the shallots in the olive oil and, when almost cooked through, add the wild mushrooms. Allow to cook for 1 minute and then season with salt and pepper. Add the Madeira and allow it to reduce. To this mushroom mix, now add the chopped tarragon and butter. This should form a sauce that will coat the pasta.
Once the pasta is cooked, drain and add directly to the pan with the shallots and mushrooms.
Serve in bowls and grate over some fresh parmesan.
