Linguine with Asparagus, Peas and Mushrooms
(Linguine con Asparagi, Piselli e Funghi)
 
 
Ingredients:

1 pound asparagus, ends trimmed, cut in 1 inch pieces
1/2 cup shelled sweet peas
1/2 ounce dried morel mushrooms or 1/4 pound fresh morels, cleaned, sliced
1/2 cup chicken stock
1 pound linguine pasta
1 garlic clove, minced
1 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil
1 tablespoon unsalted butter
1 cup heavy cream
Salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Grated Parmigiano cheese 

Directions:

If using dried morels, place in a small bowl and add in boiling water.

Let them soak for 20 minutes.

Drain and gently squeeze out any extra liquid.

Cut in half lengthwise and set aside.

Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil.

Add asparagus and blanch until crispy tender and bright green without overcooking, about 1 minute.

Remove with slotted spoon and place under cold running water.

Set aside.

Add linguine to same pot and cook until 'al dente'.

Drain.

Heat olive oil and melt butter in a large skillet over medium heat.

Add garlic, morels and 1 teaspoon salt.

Saute until garlic is fragrant and morels are tender, about 2 minutes.

Add cream and chicken stock.

Simmer until thickened and reduced by about half, 5-7 minutes.

Stir in peas and simmer until brightened and crisp tender, 1 minute.

Stir in the asparagus.

Add the pasta to the skillet and toss to combine.

Season with lots of freshly ground black pepper.

Serve with a generous spoonful of grated Parmigiano cheese for garnish. Serves 4.

That's it!
