Ingredients250g of pappardelle 10 cherry tomatoes 5 garlic cloves 125g exotic mushrooms 1 handful of baby spinach 2 tbsp virgin olive oil 1/2 tsp of chilli flakes
These are rather like broad tagliatelle and I prepared the dish like this…
Roast about 10 cherry tomatoes cut in half, in olive oil with 5 garlic cloves and a sprinkle of dried chilli for twenty minutes. Halfway through the roasting, add some small whole mushrooms. I used oyster, buna-shimeji and shiro-shimeji varieties. Meanwhile bring some water to the boil, add salt and the pappardelle. After 5 minutes, add a handful of baby spinach leaves and cook for a further 6 minutes. Serve the pasta with the roasted, tomatoes, garlic and mushrooms. Total preparation and cooking time 25 minutes.
