Is it rich? Yes. Is it warming, nourishing, autumnal comfort food? Indeed, a hearty yes. Sometimes a luscious pasta cream sauce is what we want—a decadent reminder that cloaking strands of al dente pasta with Parmesan and cream makes a perfect meal. Look for fresh porcini mushrooms at the farmers’ market, though cremini mushrooms will certainly do. Pair with a Chianti, Barbera, or Barbaresco, which complements the woodsy flavor of the mushrooms.
