Shiitake, white, and dried porcini mushrooms present the dominate taste whereas garlic, shallots, white wine, recent lemon juice and sage spherical out the straightforward and straightforward sauce. The whole dish is made in a single pot, together with the pasta, making this an ideal weeknight meal. That is the primary time I’ve cooked with dried porcini and other than the truth that they appear a bit of unusual, they’re a tasty and aromatic addition.
