Pasta With Oyster Mushrooms, Prosciutto And Fresh Sage Recipe

Pasta With Oyster Mushrooms, Prosciutto And Fresh Sage Recipe

  • 400 g linguine, reserving 1 cup of the cooking liquid (240 ml)
  • 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
  • 1 small onion, minced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • 450 g oyster mushrooms, stems trimmed, mushrooms thinly sliced (alternatively, use a mix of mushrooms, such as shiitake, brown button and oyster)
  • 200 g thinly sliced prosciutto di Parma, cut into thin strips
  • sea salt and freshly ground pepper, to taste
  • 3 tablespoons fresh sage leaves, finely chopped
  • 3/4 cup mascarpone cheese (175 g)
  • 1/4 cup freshly grated parmesan, plus additional for serving (25 g)
  • fresh chopped flat-leaf parsley, garnish

  1. Fill the large pot with cold water and a pinch of salt. Bring to a boil over high heat and add pasta, stirring occasionally to prevent the pasta from sticking. Cook according to packet instructions, until al dente.
  2. Meanwhile, in a large skillet, heat the olive oil over moderate heat. Add the onion and garlic and cook until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add the mushrooms and prosciutto, season with salt and pepper and cook undisturbed over medium-high heat until lightly browned on the bottom, about 3 minutes. Continue to cook, stirring, until the mushrooms are tender, about 3 minutes longer. Reduce the heat to low.
  3. Drain the linguine, reserving 1 cup (240 ml) of the cooking liquid. Add the linguine to the skillet. Stir in the sage and mascarpone and a little of the reserved cooking liquid (do so by adding the water a little bit at a time until the sauce reaches the desired consistency). Toss the pasta over low heat until the sauce is creamy.
  4. Stir in the 1/4 cup of parmesan and season with more salt and pepper, if desired.
  5. Serve the pasta into bowls and garnish with the chopped parsley. Serve with extra parmesan cheese and enjoy!
