This recipe is amazing in spring when fresh morels are available but can also be made with fresh or reconstituted dried mushrooms of any variety.


  • pasta noodles of your choice
  • 1 onion, finely chopped
  • 1 T olive oil
  • 3 T butter, divided
  • 4 oz. fresh shiitake mushrooms, coarsely chopped
  • 4 oz. fresh morel mushrooms, coarsely chopped
  • 1 C white wine
  • juice and zest of 1 lemon
  • roughly 1/6 of a nutmeg, grated
  • salt & pepper
  • 1 C cream
  • 2 T finely chopped parsley


  1. Heat water and cook your favorite pasta; drain.
  2. In a large skillet, heat the olive oil and 1 T butter and cook the onion over medium heat until soft. Add garlic and mushrooms, stir to combine.
  3. Add the wine, lemon juice and zest, and nutmeg. Sprinkle with salt and pepper; cook for about 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mushrooms are cooked through.
  4. Turn down heat to low and add the cream, 2 T butter and parsley; cook on low to thicken sauce.
  5. Check sauce for seasoning and add salt as needed then pile on top of pasta.
