Showcasing how umami can make a vegetarian dish utterly satisfying, the beloved Pappardelle con Porcini at Casa D’Angelo features pappardelle pasta, porcini mushrooms, fresh tomato, white wine, herbs and shaved Parmesan.

“There are many variations of the recipe, most of which add white wine to the mushroom sauce to accompany the porcini’s flavor,” says Chef Angelo Elia. “However, our pappardelle is especially outstanding because it’s topped with truffle oil, which adds an amazing aroma and unique flavor, making it stand out.”

“The sauce is light and flavorful, while the mushrooms add a wonderful, meaty texture to complement the dish,” says Elia. “What has truly made this dish a hit is the use of the highest quality ingredients. Not only is all of our pasta homemade, but the particular touch of fragrant truffle oil is the perfect element that brings the dish full circle.”
