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. Fry the onion

    Get the pasta cooking according to pack instructions. (Before draining, see step 3). 

    Meanwhile, heat 1 tbsp of oil in a frying pan over a medium heat and then fry the onion for 3 mins, or until it becomes translucent.

  2. Add the mushrooms

    Add the Garlic Paste and the mushrooms to the onions and fry for 3 more mins over high heat. 

    Add the Porcini Stock, the Porcini & Chive pot and the crème fraîche to the pan. Reduce the heat and 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 ready, use a mug to reserve a little of the cooking water (2 tbsp worth), and then drain the pasta into a colander. 

    Add the pasta and the 2 tbsps of cooking water to the mushroom pan and cook for 2 mins, stirring all the time to fully coat the penne in the sauce.

  4. Serve!

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