Syrah and Mixed Wild Mushroom Fettuccini

by David on September 1, 2010

As harvest begins we need to think of quick and easy dishes to prepare that are also hearty and satisfying after a long day on the crush pad. This is a real stick to your ribs pasta dish that you can whip up in the time it takes to cook a pot of fettucini. Mushrooms taste so good in the fall and their earthy flavors are just right with a glass of our dark, bold Carneros Syrah. Happy harvest!

Ingredients:

2 tablespoons butter
2 cloves of garlic, chopped
1 pound mixed and sliced mushrooms; cremini, white button, shitake, portabella, chanterelle
1 teaspoon tarragon, chopped
1/2 cup Goosecross Syrah
12 ounces fettuccine
2 tablespoons parsley, minced
Freshly ground black pepper
1/2 cup Parmesan cheese

Directions:
Melt butter in a medium saucepan. Add garlic and sliced mushrooms; sauté until mushrooms begin to release juices, approximately 10 minutes. Add tarragon and wine, sauté an additional 2 minutes. Keep warm on stove.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Cook fettuccine until al dente, drain well.

In a large serving bowl, toss hot pasta with the mushroom sauce. Garnish with fresh parsley, black pepper and grated parmesan cheese.

Serves 2
