Preheat the grill. Season each mushroom with olive oil. Place on the grill and grill for 3 to 4 minutes on each side. For the sauce: In a hot sauté pan, add the cream. When the cream starts to bubble and thicken, whisk in the cheese. Season with the garlic, salt and pepper. Simmer the sauce for 2-3 minutes. In a pot of boiling salted and oiled water, drop in the fresh pasta for about 2 minutes, remove, drain, and add directly to the sauce. Remove the mushrooms and slice on the bias into 2-inch slices. Using a pair of tongs, place three nests of pasta in the center of the platter. Spoon the remaining sauce over the pasta and around the plate. Arrange the mushroom around the pasta. Garnish with hand-shaved cheese and chives.

Yield: 2 main course servings

  • I love this recipe and am definitely going to try it. I don't think the oil is necessary until after the pasta is cooked, if at all. Generally I am of the mind set that you only use oil when cooking lasagna and even then you put it on after the pasta is placed in the water. Where can I get St. John's Cheese?
