Creamy Prawn, Salmon and Wild Mushroom Pasta
This is a great meal to have at the weekend. If you love creamy pasta, mushrooms and prawns then this is definitely for you. A lot of frying is involved I will admit but the results are well worth it. While the pasta is boiling, fry the chestnut mushrooms and asparagus in garlic and butter. The porcini and wild forest mushrooms have to be soaked in water for 30 mins before being placed in the pasta.
Once the pasta is drained I add butter before I adding the vegetables, seasoning, Creme Fraiche and meats. I like having a buttery flavour in my pasta. Adding spinach leaves to the pasta gives a wild yet colourful look with the mushrooms and smoked salmon slices. The smoked flavour comes through the creamy sauce.
This is a great pasta to eat with the family.
