porcini mushroom & truffle triangoli with seared asparagus and cremini in brown butter sage sauce

Asparagus is in season so it’s time to eat as much of it as possible! Continue reading to get my recipe for an earthy triangoli pasta dinner. Before you begin, I’d recommend you use more butter than the 4 tablespoons I used last night to get a greater yield on the brown butter sage sauce! Mine could’ve used just a wee bit more sauce.

Ingredients:

  • Porcini mushroom & truffle triangoli
  • 4 tablespoons (1/2 stick) unsalted butter
  • Cremini mushrooms, sliced
  • 6 sage leaves, chiffonade
  • Asparagus, peeled (if thick stalks and fibrous) and coined up to tips
  • Salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • Parmesan cheese

Cook the porcini mushroom & truffle triangoli in a pot of lightly salted boiling water until it reaches your desired level of doneness.

Meanwhile, melt the butter and cook the cremini mushrooms (as much as you like without overcrowding the pan!) and sage leaves until the mushrooms are lightly browned. Add in the asparagus and cook, stirring frequently, for about 2 minutes. Season with salt, freshly ground black pepper and grated Parmesan cheese.

Drain the cooked triangoli of excess water and add to the pan. Remove the pan from the heat and gently toss until each of the triangoli is glistening from the brown butter sage sauce. Plate and enjoy! If you’d like, you can finish the dish with a top layer of grated Parmesan cheese.
