DD1 ate mushroom tagliatelle at pre-school, (mushroom!!) so I am going to try it at home. I thought this sounded like a nice recipe, as it’s made with creme fraiche, rather than cream. I missed out the spinach, just incase that was a step too far.
She wouldn’t even touch it. She ate the pasta when it was naked, but wouldn’t even try it. TBH I didn’t really like it that much, but I obviously didn’t tell her that!
- 1 tbsp olive oil
- bunch spring onions, finely sliced
- 2 garlic cloves, finely chopped
- 10 button or chestnut mushrooms, finely sliced
- 200g fresh spinach, washed
- 1 tbsp plain flour
- 1 x 200ml7fl oz tub crème fraîche
- salt and freshly ground black pepper
- 300g/10½oz dried tagliatelle
- Heat the oil in a pan and gently fry the spring onions and garlic for a few minutes, or until pale golden-brown. Add the mushrooms and fry over a high heat for 8-10 minutes, or until the water has evaporated. Tip the spinach into the pan, and stir regularly as it wilts. Continue cooking over a medium heat until most of the water has evaporated.
- Sprinkle the flour over the mixture, stir it in well, then cook for a further minute. Remove the pan from the heat and stir in the crème fraîche. Return the pan to the heat, bring to the boil, and simmer for a few minutes, or until the sauce has thickened. Season to taste with salt and freshly ground pepper.
- Meanwhile, cook the pasta in a large pan of salted boiling water, according to packet instructions. Once cooked, drain the pasta, and toss with the mushroom and spinach sauce. Serve immediately.
