Wild Mushroom Pappardelle Pasta with Mascarpone

As much as I love to cook, I’m a bit  intimidated by fancy recipes.  I don’t do a lot of gourmet recipes and I make no claims of being a chef. I tend to cook recipes that are very similar to what my Mom made when I was growing up.

However, I may make a few substitutions to make them paleo or gluten free.  I may make them a little bit healthier than the original recipe. However, you definitely won’t find fancy French cuisine on the menu if you stop by for dinner one night.

I recently received several meals from Plated.com as part of this post.  That gave me the opportunity to try something a bit different.  Plated.com is a service that delivers everything you need to make a delicious meal to your door.

They use local and seasonal produce whenever possible and source their meats from local, family-owned purveyors. They partner with responsible companies like Sea to Table to make sure that their fish is always fresh, and wild-caught when possible.

What is a wild mushroom for cooking?

We often use morel mushrooms when we make this. But, you can also use elephant ears or oyster mushrooms.

What is wild mushroom sauce made of?

This recipe uses wild mushrooms, broth, mascarpone cheese, butter and herbs. It’s a simple sauce you can serve over your favorite pasta.

What to serve with pappardelle pasta

For our first meal, I chose a Provencal Steak with Purple Potatoes and Green Beans. This was very similar to the type of cooking I normally do and was a huge hit with everyone in the house.

For the second meal, I stepped outside of my comfort zone and chose a Wild Mushroom Pappardelle Pasta with Mascarpone. In case you don’t know (like I didn’t), pappardelle are large, very broad, flat pasta noodles.

It was absolutely amazing and everyone went back for seconds after I explained what pappardelle was to them!

    • The ingredients were sent in a kit so the packet was what they were sent. It was about 2-3 TBSP but you can adjust more or less for taste.

  2. I don't think anyone would be looking at your apron that closely. Besides, if you're wearing it again, you'll be getting it dirty again. Those meals look delicious, delicious.
  3. Oh yummy everything looks so fresh! I love Oxyclean too especially with 5 kids - you can imagine that dirty clothes!
  4. Both dishes look absolutely delicious. And I learned something because I had no idea what Pappardelle is.
