Serves 4

You can substitute fresh parsley or thyme for the dill. A little starchy pasta cooking liquid helps to bind the delicate sauce.

How to Make It

Step 1

Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain in a colander over a bowl, reserving 1/3 cup cooking liquid.

Step 2

Heat a large skillet over medium-high heat. Add oil; swirl to coat. Add onion; sauté 3 minutes or until tender. Add garlic and mushrooms; cook 8 minutes or until mushrooms are browned. Add stock and salt; bring to a boil. Reduce heat, and simmer 5 minutes or until liquid is reduced by half. Stir in 1/3 cup reserved cooking liquid, dill, butter, rind, vinegar, and pepper. Add pasta; toss to coat. Place 1 1/4 cups pasta mixture in each of 4 bowls. Top each serving with 1 tablespoon ricotta cheese and 1 tablespoon Parmesan cheese.

Hubby was disappointed when I told him what I was making for dinner.  But even he admitted how good the meal was.  My teen did complain about the lemon zest.  I used a combination of shiitakes, chanterelles, and portobellos.  I also only used 1.5 T of olive oil and omitted the pasta water at the end.  Don't skip the ricotta.  It really made the dish.  Will make again.

Try dried mushrooms that have been  soaked in the hot broth.

I had high hopes for this recipe but was quite disappointed.  I followed the recipe exactly, as I usually do and my husband and I just found it bland and tasteless.  Ending up discarding leftovers......

Quick and Easy

Substituted parsley for the dill, but otherwise followed recipe. It was a great dinner that came together quickly and very delicious!

Delicious-Even Better the Next Day!!

This was scrumptious! I skipped the lemon and used all fresh shiitake mushrooms, so the prep was longer but WOW-made it delicious! Also couldn't find sherry vinegar so I used red vinegar and I don't think it made a difference. Prep was a little long but well worth it.

Picky Husband liked this one!
