Oh so Fresh Mushrooms Fettucine



I'm sneaking in a post this afternoon. I have lots of photos in my camera not loaded into the computer yet. Certainly I feel more productive as my "to do" list is endless, but a sense of rush since starting work.

I picked up a packet of fresh mushrooms and pasta and decided to cook something with it. Fresh flavours (*edit-I typed behaviours! argh!) work well together no matter how simplistic the dish is.

The good thing about fresh pasta is it only takes 3 minutes to cook.

Oh so Fresh Mushroom Fettucine
1 packet of fresh pasta
1 packet of fresh mixed mushrooms
100 grams of shredded ham (use smoke salmon!)
1 tablespoon of butter
1.5 tsp flour
1 cup of milk
seasoning

1) Cook fresh pasta in a boiling pot of water. Drain and keep warm.

2) Melt butter. Add flour. Stir till golden brown. Add milk.Whisk till it becomes a white sauce. Set aside.

3) Quickly fry mushrooms and ham (add garlic if u want) with seasoning. Toss pasta with mushroom mixture. Add sauce. Serve hot.

I'm serving this dish with my friends at Presto Pasta Nights hosted by Ruth from Once Upon A Feast

I'm a big fan of fresh mushrooms. Would've love to have seen the mushrooms before you cooked it. We are so limited in the varieties we gat in UK.

The fresh pasta makes a BIG difference... compared to the usual $1 per 500g dried ones.
For a mushroom lover like me, this is heaven.
