Pappardelle with Mushroom Sauce

  • Cooking time: 20 mins
  • Serves: 4
  • 400g pappardelle pasta
  • 2 tbs olive oil
  • 3 garlic cloves, crushed
  • 1 long red chilli, deseeded & finely chopped
  • 1 long green chilli, deseeded & finely chopped
  • 400g button mushrooms, sliced
  • 300ml thickened cream (see tip)
  • 2 eggs
  • 50g parmesan cheese, finely grated
  • ¼ cup chopped flat leaf parsley
  1. Cook pappardelle in a large saucepan of boiling salted water, following packet directions, until tender.
  2. Meanwhile, heat oil in a large frying pan over medium heat. Add garlic and chilli and cook 2 minutes until soft. Increase heat to high, add the mushrooms. Cook, stirring occasionally, for 6 minutes or until mushrooms are tender.
  3. Drain pappardelle and return to the hot saucepan, reserving ¼ cup of the pasta water. Whisk the cream, eggs and reserved pasta water in a jug with a fork until well combined, then add to the hot pasta with the mushrooms and half the parmesan.
  4. Return the pan to medium-low heat. Toss pasta for 1 minute or until egg begins to set. Remove from heat. Add parsley, season with salt and pepper. Spoon into bowls, serve topped with remaining parmesan.
