Mushroom Cream Pasta
- 8 tbsp. olive oil
- 7 garlic cloves
- 2 packs champignon mushrooms
- 1 large onion
- 7 oz. spinach (200 g)
- Salt and coarse black pepper
- 1 pack chestnuts
- 2 cups heavy cream (500 g)
- ½ tsp. nutmeg
- 1 tsp. lemon zest
- Parmesan generously and for garnish
- Heat the olive oil in a large frying pan over medium heat.
- Fry fresh garlic cloves until they become crispy on the outside but soft on the inside. Be careful not to burn them.
- Cut the onion into thin strips and add them to the pan. Cook the onions until they turn golden brown.
- Add the mushrooms and saute for 5–7 minutes, or until they reduce in size and release their juices. Allow them to simmer in their liquid to bring out their mild, earthy flavor.
- Toss in the whole chestnuts.
- Season everything with salt and coarse black pepper.
- Pour in the heavy cream and season with lemon zest and nutmeg.
- Add Parmesan cheese generously, but a little at a time.
- Allow the mixture to simmer on low heat. Stir occasionally until the sauce reduces and thickens.
- While waiting for your sauce to reduce, bring a pot of salted water to boil. Cook your preferred pasta according to the box instructions.
- Drain your pasta and toss it in the pan with the sauce. Fold the pasta gently into the cream until evenly coated.
- Top the dish with more parmesan cheese just before serving. Enjoy!
