Chef Chuck's Pasta with Mascarpone and Mushrooms

Pasta con Mascarpone e Funghi

A great pasta dish with a creamy mascarpone sauce and earthy mushrooms.  I choose Trottole pasta because of it's uniqueness in shape.  Sprinkle fresh chopped sage on top for an added flavor.

Pasta with Mascarpone and Mushrooms

1/2 pound pasta
2 tablespoons olive oil
2 tablespoons butter
8 ounces mushrooms, sliced
4 ounces mascarpone cheese
3 egg yolks
3/4 cup parmigiano cheese, grated
1/2 cup heavy cream
1 tablespoon sage, chopped
salt and pepper

In a large pot add salt and cook pasta till al dente.  Meanwhile in a large frying pan heat olive oil and butter add mushrooms and cook a few minutes.  In a bowl whisk  yolks, parmigiano, and cream set aside.  Add mascarpone to mushrooms and stir till melted, add pasta to pan with a little pasta water.  Stir in yolk mixture and combine all ingredients, season with salt, pepper and sage.
