Wild Mushroom and Pasta Dinner

The following is a guest blog post from Bren Haas – blogger at BG Garden. 

This is one of my family’s favorite quick dishes to prepare in spring and autumn.  It is quick meal and super fun to add a few mushrooms that were hunted in our woods here in Ohio. Not all mushrooms are edible so be sure to check species information.  I recommend and trust the OSU  Extension website.

6 oz wild mixed mushrooms (morels, shiitake, porcini and portobello are my favorite)
4 tablespoons olive oil infused with red pepper
2 clove garlic, finely chopped
Salt and freshly ground black pepper
1/2 lemon, juiced
8 oz of prepared linguine pasta
3 oz of fresh grated Parmesan
fresh parsley

Be sure to clean wild mushrooms by brushing off any dirt  using a pastry brush or dabbing with a clean towel.

Mushrooms should be sliced thinly.

Add infused olive oil into a very hot skillet carefully add finely chopped garlic.

Add the mushrooms to the skillet and let fry fast being sure to toss the mix once or twice. Let mushroom and garlic fry fast, tossing once or twice for about 5-10 minutes.

Add pepper and squeeze fresh lemon juice.

In another skillet add prepared pasta and 3 tablespoons of chicken broth.

Remove pasta once it is hot.

In your favorite serving dish add warm pasta, mushrooms, with the Parmesan and parsley.
