My family loves pasta, I can prepare it in almost any way because I know that I will always be a winner and I am delighted, because it is usually an easy dish to prepare and does not require major complications. I like to vary the recipe, the last one I have tried is these linguine with shiitake mushrooms and walnut sauce.

This is my first time using these mushrooms, I bought them dehydrated but I will try to get them fresh to see how I like them better. The walnut sauce is a recipe that a friend passed to me and it is a real discovery, because in addition to accompanying a pasta dish it is also used for meat or fish. I loved.

How to make spaghetti with shiitake mushrooms and walnut sauce

Difficulty: Medium
  • Total time 45 m
  • Elaboration 45 m

We start by hydrating the shiitake mushrooms, for this we will immerse them in hot water for half an hour, rinse and drain them and leave them again for ten more minutes in more hot water. Meanwhile, we chop the onion and carve the walnuts. Heat a little oil in a frying pan and add the onion.

When the onion is transparent add the chopped walnuts. We stir, salt and pepper and leave a little to unite everything. Add the evaporated milk, salt and pepper and cook over low heat for 2-3 minutes. Then we blend with an electric mixer, until there is a fine sauce with a texture like bechamel.

We drain the shiitake mushrooms. We put a frying pan with a little oil on the fire and add the mushrooms, which we will let them cook over a very low heat and add them to the walnut sauce. Boil the pasta for the time set by the manufacturer, drain, mix everything, add salt and pepper and serve immediately.
