Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons butter chopped
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 onion chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves chopped
  • 8 ounces cremini mushrooms sliced
  • 1⁄2 cup white wine
  • 1⁄2 cup whipping cream or half and half
  • 1 tablespoon fresh parsley chopped
  • 8 ounces dried Tagliatelle
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • Parmesan cheese for serving

Instructions

  • Cook the pasta in a large pot of boiling water until quite al dente (it will finish cooking in the sauce).
  • Meanwhile, melt the butter with the oil in a large frying pan on medium-high heat and sauté the onion until soft. Add the garlic and sauté another minute.
  • Add the mushrooms and cook until soft. Season well with salt and pepper.
  • Add the wine and cream, simmer for 5 minutes, then add the parsley and check the seasoning again.
  • Toss the pasta through the sauce, sprinkle with Parmesan cheese, and serve.

Notes

  • To clean the mushrooms, use a damp paper towel or a dishtowel to remove any dirt one at a time. Cleaning mushrooms with water will make them waterlogged. Mushrooms absorb water like little sponges and they won't brown well when cooked if they are full of water. 
  • If you feel you must use water, you can lightly rinse the mushrooms with cool water and pat dry with paper towels, but do not soak them.
  • When cooking mushrooms, don't overcrowd the pan. Cook mushrooms in a pan with a good amount of surface area. You want to be able to spread the mushrooms in a single layer to allow contact with the hot pan and let moisture evaporate quickly so they brown nicely.
