Ingredients

  • 150g dried trofie or fusilli
  • 2 cloves of garlic
  • 250g mixed mushrooms
  • 25g Parmesan cheese
  • 2 heaped tablespoons half-fat crème fraîche

Preparation

1. Cook the pasta in a pan of boiling salted water according to the packet instructions, then drain, reserving a mugful of cooking water.

2. Meanwhile, peel and finely slice the garlic. Place it in a large non-stick frying pan on a medium-high heat with ½ a tablespoon of olive oil, followed 1 minute later by the mushrooms, tearing up any larger ones.

3. Season with sea salt and black pepper, and cook for 8 minutes, or until golden, tossing regularly.

4. Toss the drained pasta into the mushroom pan with a splash of reserved cooking water.

5. Finely grate in most of the Parmesan, stir in the crème fraîche, taste, season to perfection, and dish up, finishing with a final grating of Parmesan.
