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. The mushroom stock in this recipe really is excellent - we hope you agree!

Our 20 minute recipe

  • 1.

    Bring a pot of water to the boil for your pasta. Once boiling, put the penne pasta in and cook for 10 mins, or until al dente.

  • 2.

    Heat 1 tbsp oil in a large frying pan over medium heat and fry the onion for 2 mins, until translucent. Add the Garlic Paste and the mushrooms and fry for 3 more mins at high heat.

  • 3.

    Add the crème fraîche, Porcini Stock and Porcini & Chive to the pan. Reduce the heat and simmer gently for 2-3 mins. (Add more crème fraîche if it’s getting too dry)

  • 4.

    When ready, reserve a little of the cooking water (2-3 tbsps), and then drain the pasta. Add the pasta and the 2 tbsps cooking water to the mushroom pan. Cook for 2 mins, stirring all the time.

  • 5.

    Serve in bowls with a sprinkle of chopped parsley on top if you’re using it, and grated parmesan, if desired.
