As the cookbook says, quick and easy! And also very good! This serves 4 people.
1 cup mushrooms
1 3/4 cups dried past shapes
2 tbsp olive oil
1 clove garlic, peeled and crushed
6 green onions, trimmed and finely sliced
2/3 cup dry, white wine
1 cup mascarpone cheese
2 tbsp chives
2 tbsp parsley
salt and pepper
If the mushrooms are large, slice them. Cook pasta.
Heat the oil in a large skillet and cook the garlic and green onions for 2-3 minutes over a moderate heat. Add the mushrooms and cook for 5 minutes until they are softened and tender.
Add the wine and bring to a boil. Let the mixture boil for 2-3 minutes to reduce a little.
Stir in the mascarpone, stirring well to mix. Cook for 2-3 minutes until pipping hot. Remove from the heat and stir in the chopped chives and parsley. Season to taste and stir this sauce through the cooked pasta.
