The creamiest, easy, and fairly quick Chanterelle Mushrooms Pasta. The complex fragrance of Chanterelle mushrooms calls for an equally complex yet delicate grape variety. Cue Pinot Noir! The delicacy and elegance of this grape variety are a perfect match for this Chanterelle Mushrooms Pasta. A bomb combo for your palate!
A few details about the recipe
Chanterelles are an ultimate delicacy when it comes to mushrooms. In this recipe, I added directions for both fresh and frozen Chanterelles. These delicious mushrooms are used in two textures: crispy and mixed into a rich creamy sauce that coats long-shaped pasta beautifully.
Pasta: I used Linguine, because I love them, but any long shape pasta will work wonders! Tagliatelle, Fettucine, Tagliolini, you name it!
White wine for the sauce: make sure to use a dry white wine, with no residual sugar. A dry Pinot Grigio, Sauvignon Blanc, or Chardonnay will be perfect.
This recipe is great when having people over as the sauce can be made in advance and stored in the fridge. You just have to reheat it while the pasta is cooking!
🍷Wine Pairing for Chanterelle Mushrooms Pasta
Lightly tannic and remarkably supple in texture, Pinot Noir usually displays complex aromas of red berries, violet, and dried flowers, and an earthiness that will complement the delicate aromas and flavors of the Chanterelles without being overpowering.
