Mushroom Ravioli with Wild Mushroom Cream Sauce


Chef Tony Pisconeri



Fresh Wild Mushroom Ravioli pasta or Ricotta Cavatelli or pasta of your choice

2 tablespoons olive oil

1 pound assorted wild mushrooms, stems trimmed, wiped clean, and thinly sliced

1/4 cup chopped shallots

1 tablespoon chopped garlic

2 teaspoons minced fresh thyme leaves

1 teaspoon salt

1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper

2 cups heavy cream

1/2 cup finely grated Parmesan

2 tablespoons finely chopped chives or Fresh Rosemary



In a large pot of boiling salted water, cook the pasta until al dente. Drain and return to the pot. Cover to keep warm.

Meanwhile, in a large sauté pan, heat the oil over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring, until soft, 3 to 4 minutes. Add the shallots, garlic, thyme, salt, and pepper, and cook, stirring, until fragrant, 2 minutes. Add the cream, increase the heat to high, and bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the sauce thickens enough to coat the back of a spoon, about 5 minutes. Add the Parmesan and adjust the seasoning, to taste.

Add the pasta, stir to coat with the sauce, and cook until the pasta is heated through, 1 minute. Remove from the heat and divide among 4 serving bowls or plates. Sprinkle each serving with chives/rosemary and serve immediately.

Fall is Here and It's Time for the John Campbell Folk School

I am looking forward to the upcoming week at the John C. Campbell Folk School, in Brasstown, North Carolina. This week (September 25 - 30) I will be teaching Hand Crafted Pasta and Artisan Pizza and Flat breads.

There is nothing that says Welcome Fall like a week at the Folkschool!

I look forward to meeting my student from across the country!
