Tagliatelle ai Prugnoli..two separate ingredients at birth.

There are things in the kitchen that no matter how distant they seem made to be together.

Plum mushrooms, small & # 8220 pins & # 8221 of pleasure

That's what happens at tagliatelle They Prugnoli mushrooms that every May they meet at the table like old friends resuming the speeches left in abeyance a year before.

they tagliatelle they are definitely the most typical of homemade pasta from Romagna. Probably their success and their diffusion were facilitated by the speed in producing them and in the simplicity of the ingredients (eggs and flour). Seasoned in 99% of cases with a good meat stew, they remain a pasta format that lends itself to many preparations.

Prunes, knife cutting

and Prugnoli are the eden of mushroom hunters. Equipped with a strong aromaticity, they are the most appreciated by connoisseurs and nourish many niche admirers who make them real scorpions in the very fast 30 days in which they are found. At the beginning of the season, a kilo of local prunes can cost up to € 80. Spring is also a gathering place for many other fruits of the undergrowth (in this regard you can read my article).

This treasure is very widespread in Alta-Valmarecchia and in the park of Sasso Simone-Simoncello in the month between April and May.

The "stained milk" mushroom is tiny and hides in long crescents under dark green grass leaves. Just dodge it with a stick ... and here they are!

Prunes can be eaten raw (preferably in small quantities) on beef carpaccio or ox-eye eggs, sautéed in a pan for croutons or as a condiment for meat. The best way to taste them is for me as a sauce for a first course of homemade pasta.

Today I propose the recipe for Tagliatelle ai Prugnoli from my restaurant:

  • 400 gr. of fresh prunes
  • 1 clove of garlic
  • a clarified butter nut
  • extra virgin olive oil q.b.
  • its
  • 0.10 lt. of dry white wine
  • white pepper
  • Prezzemolo

Arrange the flour on a cutting board, creating the classic fountain in the center.

Preparing the dough by hand

Break the eggs inside and start kneading by hand until you get a smooth dough.

Let the dough rest under a cloth for 20 minutes.

Sprinkle the cutting board and dough with a little flour and start rolling out the dough with a rolling pin for fresh dough until you get the desired thickness.

The sheets are rolled up

While the leftovers are drying, you can prepare the sauce. This preparation will be very fast to preserve the quality of the raw material.

Clean the mushrooms with a soft bristle brush or a damp cloth for the dirtiest ones.

Clean them and chop them with a knife. One of the fundamental steps is represented by the knife cut that must leave the piece of mushroom large enough to preserve its consistency.

Heat a saucepan with oil and a nut of butter. Add a clove of garlic.

Once it has turned brown, add the Prunes, letting it simmer for a few moments without adding salt. This is the time that makes the difference between a good sauce and a mediocre one. The mushrooms must in fact brown caramelizing to express the maximum of their flavor.

After a minute, add the white wine, letting it fade.

Gradient the wine, lower to medium heat, salt, pepper and add the chopped parsley.

3-4 minutes of cooking and your sauce is ready. Simple, fast and with the maximum compromise between aromaticity and taste!

Cut the noodles thin enough after rolling up the leftovers.

Slice them into nests.

Cook them in a pot with plenty of salted water. After immersing them, just boil them so that they are cooked.

Saute them in a pan with your plum sauce.

My pairing with wine? Certainly risky and dictated by the fact that I wanted a Piedmontese wine and you know, the desires are not discussed!

Barolo Cluè 2007 from Nebbiolo grapes. The soft tannins made the pairing quite pleasant. The elegance of the wine has managed in a way not to invade the plate in a comprehensive way. The result was a very pleasant evening!

You can find the wines of the Coluè winery in my restaurant at the Grotta di Pietracuta.

Porcini Mushroom Cream

Cream Chef with Porcini Mushrooms has the intense flavor d.

If you want a very appetizing dish, great for winter, the noodles with mushroom sauce, sausage, Chef mushroom cream and saffron they are the perfect first to enhance the good scents of the season.

It's one easy and fast recipeand to be realized: the decided flavors combine with taste and, with Chef mushroom cream, you will add a delicate and creamy touch, which will make your first course perfect for adults and children with demanding palates. It can be the right recipe for a structured menu but also for a lunch or dinner with little notice.

Mushroom and sausage noodles are an excellent and tasty first course to serve for lunch, or for dinner, if you want to enjoy a dish full of taste and flavor. The preparation described here is simple to carry out, so much so that all the steps of the process are described in great detail. For a successful dish, you can follow our advice, such as making a light stir-fry with a finely chopped clove of garlic or, if you want, with a peeled white onion and cut into very thin strips.

This will add a note of flavor not indifferent to your seasoning, so much so that it makes the dish you are going to serve even tastier. In addition, in this recipe, poplar mushrooms are used, which go very well with the taste of the sausage, but you can also choose to use another type of mushroom, such as, for example, champignon mushrooms or porcini mushrooms.

Both of these types go well with meat and some types of spices, such as saffron. Noodles, then, are a format of pasta that is generally used for their ability to pick up the sauce well: in fact, the rougher the dough dough, the more porous it is and, as a result, the better the sauce.

In addition, when you sauté the pasta with the sauce, if you want, you can add a whole bunch of parsley, or chopped parsley, so as to give a note of freshness to the whole dish. If, on the other hand, you want to enjoy a first course with mushrooms, saffron and sausage with a more flavorful addition, then you can sprinkle the noodles with ground black pepper, or always with pepper, but served in grains. In addition, you can dust the pasta with grated pecorino cheese or flaked Parmesan cheese, depending on your taste. By doing so, you will have prepared an excellent first course, ready to be enjoyed.


Gently clean the mushrooms, trying to remove all the earth, then slice only the larger ones, leaving the small ones whole. Peel the sausage. Clean and finely chop both the shallots and the garlic and then brown them in a large pan with a little oil. Add the sausage, shell it with a spoon and brown it. At this point add the mushrooms and cook, blending with the wine. Add salt and pepper.

Now add the cream to the Chef mushrooms and cream for a few minutes to flavor. Separately, dissolve the saffron in a cup of hot water. Once melted, add it to the sauce in the pan.

Cook the fresh pasta in boiling water already salted. Once you’ve drained it, al dente, very well, sauté the noodles in the pan with the seasoning. Add a little fresh thyme and whisk. Noodles should be served hot with a drizzle of crude oil.

Poplar ragout

This one that you find described is the basic recipe of the poplar ragout that is used as a base both to cook risottos and to season pasta starters that I prefer fresh to egg and long format for me his death is with the noodles pulled rather thin . I spend just two words on cultivated poplar mushrooms that are almost always available, and that although grown retain a nice aroma giving us pleasant recipes, they are certainly not comparable to nails born in nature but the sauces obtained give good organoleptic results. So as I say a few lines above in my opinion among the cultivated poplars are the mushrooms with the strongest flavor, but look for a package that has spent on the fridge no more than 48 hours (24 is better) because then they are "saddened", they lose their crunchiness, they probably dehydrate too much and acquire a slightly woody consistency. If you find them nice fresh protect them by removing most of the stem, then give them a quick rinse to remove any residue from the growing substrate and they are ready to use. The poplar ragout is prepared by trifoliating them with extra virgin olive oil, garlic and a little onion, sautéing for 4 -5 minutes on a high flame and blending a little white wine. Once the alcohol has evaporated, salt and pepper with black peppercorns and add the finely chopped parsley. If you want them white, stretch them with a little vegetable broth and let them cook slowly for about ten minutes, adjusting at the end of the salt. If you prefer a red poplar ragout like me, do the same steps but add some good date paste and use less broth, then continue cooking for about ten minutes and the sauce will be ready. Last news if the poplar ragout is used as a base for a risotto, tighten it a little more if instead you decide on the noodles, leave it a little more liquid because the egg pasta absorbs a lot and the whole thing would end up being too dry. I give a nice dusting of Parmesan cheese on the noodles but as usual it all depends on personal tastes.

Ingredients: 250 g of cultivated poplars, 1 clove of garlic, 1 2 small golden onion, 1 tuft of parsley, 250 g of tomato puree, 1 2 glass of white wine, 1 ladle of vegetable broth, a nice round of extra virgin olive oil, to taste salt and black pepper.

Preparation time: 10 minutes. Cooking time: 15 - 20 minutes. ress: ragù for 2 portions of noodles.

Divide the tufts of poplars trying to remove most of the crop substrate residue.

Cut most of the stems and give a quick rinse.

Prepare the garlic and onion stir-fry and let it simmer.

When it starts to smell, add the poplars, sauté them for 4 & # 8211 5 minutes, salt and pepper and add two fingers of dry white wine.

Add the parsley and lower the heat, leaving to season for a couple of minutes.

Add the raw puree and lengthen with a ladle of vegetable broth.

Cover the pan and simmer for about 15 minutes.

When the poplars are soft, tighten the ragù to the desired point and adjust if necessary with salt.

I used it to season two nice portions of egg fettuccine.

How to clean and cut mushrooms

Cleaning mushrooms is as easy as it is important. Avoid washing your mushrooms with water for lack of time if you do not want to damage them. It is far preferable to clean the mushrooms in two stages:

Phase 1. If you have fresh mushrooms at your disposal, it is very likely that they will hide parasites that you cannot find with the naked eye. Then place the mushrooms upside down on a newspaper page, the smell will disturb them and push them up the stem. In this way you can eliminate them by cutting the earthy part directly.
Advice: It is preferable to perform this operation in a cool place and not too bright.

Phase 2. With the help of a clean, damp cotton cloth, gently rub the surface of the mushroom to remove the earthy parts. If you find stains on the mushrooms, it’s best to remove them by scraping with the help of a smooth-edged knife. It is now possible to separate the head from the stem by rotating it and cleaning it in the same way inside it.

At this point you can cut the mushrooms according to your preparation. Place the stem on a cutting board and cut it according to its length before also cutting its head into small slices.
