This dish is an all time family favourite and everyone will enjoy it. It's a quick and easy recipe so it's ideal for when you want something delicious in next to no time. All you have to do is chop the onion and slice the mushrooms for prep. We've chosen penne because the hollow centre and the ridges allow it to hold the sauce just a bit better, making your meal even tastier. In the kit you'll find garlic paste, mushroom stock and porcini seasoning. The porcini mushrooms will give a pungent, woodsy flavour to this Wild Mushroom Penne - complementing the rich, milky flavour of the crème fraîche. Just top it off with a sprinkle of parsley and some grated parmesan to enhance the flavour.

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Fry the onion

    Cook the pasta according to pack instructions. 

    Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and fry the onion for 2 mins, or until it becomes translucent. 

  • 2.

    Add the mushrooms

    Add the GARLIC PASTE and the mushrooms to the pan and fry for 3 more mins over high heat.

    Reduce the heat and add the PORCINI STOCK, the PORCINI & CHIVE pot and the crème fraîche to the pan. Let it simmer gently for 2-3 mins. (Add a little more crème fraîche if it’s getting too dry.)

  • 3.

    Mix the pasta into the sauce

    When the pasta is done, collect 2 tbsp of cooking water using a mug, then drain the pasta and add it to the sauce.  

    Pour in the reserved cooking water and cook for 2 mins, stirring to fully coat the penne in the sauce. 

  • 4.

    Serve in bowls with a sprinkle of chopped parsley on top with grated parmesan (if using).

Very rich with mushrooms - personally decided to add chicken to round it out a little - stock held up very well. I would rate 5 - husband rate 3 - hence average 4.

Terri - Apr 24, 2019

Very tasty

Heather - Apr 24, 2019

So tasty! Easy and fast to make. We replaced creme fraiche with yoghurt and it was fine! So good.

I have ordered this three times now. One of my favourites. I added chicken this time. So easy to cook. Really tasty

Can’t believe they made a humble mushroom pasta so delicious and enticing. I added chilli flakes and extra garlic. Finger licking good.

Joanne - Apr 23, 2019


Penelope - Apr 23, 2019

So easy to make and so very tasty. One of my favourites. Add a bit of milk if the sauce gets too thick.

Steph - Apr 23, 2019

This was quite tasteless and the most disappointing recipe to date.

Kate - Apr 22, 2019

The creme fraiche separated and had an odd texture. Not a favourite

Emma - Apr 22, 2019

Quite rich in flavour. I made mine using soya yoghurt in place of creme friache as I'm lactose intolerant

Lisa - Apr 19, 2019

Although the name is the clue and we shouldn’t have been surprised, this was incredibly mushroom-y! Quite overpowering flavours. Fine once but wouldn’t get again.
