...for the pasta dough...

...for the mushroom ragù...

  • 300 g Chestnut Mushrooms
  • 1/4 cup White Wine
  • 1 Garlic Clove
  • 1 tbsp olive oil
  • 1/2 tsp Chilly Flakes
  • Fresh Thyme
  • Salt
  • Pepper

...for the spinach&parsley pesto...


  • Cut mushrooms into small dice and sauté on medium heat in a pan with olive oil, minced garlic, chilly flakes, salt, pepper and thyme.  Once all their liquid evaporates add the wine until it evaporates too. Set aside.
  • Combine all the ingredients for the pesto in a blender and blend until smooth. Note: if you're using frozen spinach simply defrost and cook for a couple of minutes in the microwave; if you have fresh ones, cook on a pan or in the microwave for a few minutes, then roughly chop before adding them to the blender.
  • Make tagliatelle using a pasta machine (use store bought ones for a quicker version).
  • Boil tagliatelle "al dente" then add them with some butter and thyme to a pan, sauté for a minutes or so, until creamy, then add the mushroom ragù.
  • You can now decide whether to serve them already coated in pesto or give your guests a pot of pesto for them to add as they wish.
