This is another of the gems I found in my mother’s notebook of beloved recipes she inherited from her mother. It is one of the first dishes our daughter Gabriella made all by herself from start to finish (I did drain the pasta for her). It is also wonderful with a mixture of shiitake and white mushrooms. In fact, I’m sure it would be good with any assortment of mushrooms. Don’t be shy in seasoning this dish. Remember, its a sauce that is meant to season pasta, so it should be seasoned more aggressively than if it were a stand-alone side dish.
