Pasta con Funghi

pasta con funghi – planner 3

1x 400g pack asda smartprice mushrooms sliced thinly
the juice from a jar of garlic stuffed olives
2 small onions (approx 110g)
2 tspns garlic
450g pasta
25g SR flour
salt and pepper
pinch of chilli
approx 250ml veg stock
10 ml oil to fry the mushrooms and 50ml to make roux

Make a roux with the fat and flour. Add the hot stock in about 4 goes. Between each addition of stock stir the mixture until all the liquid incorporates into the flour and fat. (If you lift the pan off the heat and beat hard with a wooden spoon after the liquid is incorporated your sauce will be beautifully glossy). By the time all the liquid is added you should have a sauce which will coat the back of a spoon. If not add more water or stock. Stir in the seasonings.

Fry finely chopped mushrooms and onion. Add to the sauce and season sauce with pepper and salt.

Stir sauce into cooked pasta.

Put saucy pasta in baking dish. Shove in oven at 180 until there are nice brown crunchy bits on the top.
