  • 400g morel or mixed mushrooms
  • 100ml madeira
  • 3 tbsp mascarpone
  • 400g orecchiette pasta
  • A handful of chopped fresh parsley

Method

  1. Melt the butter in a frying pan and, when sizzling, add the mixed mushrooms (sliced if large). Season, then when golden add the madeira and bubble until syrupy.
  2. Stir through the mascarpone, a handful of chopped fresh parsley and a squeeze of lemon juice.

  1. Toss the pasta in the pan with the sauce before serving. It’s easier to mix the two in the pan than the bowl and will ensure the pasta is evenly coated.
