Egg Pasta with Green Beans and Mushrooms
Here is another vegetarian recipe with amazing depth of flavors. The earthiness of the mushroom, perfectly marries with the green beans, which also add texture to the dish. But the secret star of the show is the wine - its complex aroma is essential to bringing all the flavors together, as it often does in Italian cuisine.
This all-season pasta sauce can be prepared quickly, almost as the pasta boils, and it makes for a satisfying dish that is also beautiful to serve.
Ingredients for 2 people
- 125 g (4 ½ oz) fresh or dried egg pasta (e.g.: pappardelle, tagliatelle, fettuccine)
- 100 g (3 ½ oz) green beans, shaved (see below)
- 150 g (5 ½ oz) mushrooms (e.g.: fresh porcini, oyster, crimini), sliced

- 2 Tbsp olive oil
- 1 cup vegetable stock, warmed up
- 1 cup half and half (10% cream)
- ½ glass dry white wine
- 2 Tbsp Parmigiano Reggiano, shaved

Green beans can be easily shaved using a sharp potato peeler. This preparation is essential for the recipe as it tenderizes the green beans, while preserving their crunchiness.
