Simple Porcini Pasta Recipe

People often come into the store asking how they can use the Il Macchiaiolo Porcini Pasta we carry. It’s a gourmet product by all definitions and is a beautifully made and packaged. I always think back to a one of the first ways I cooked it.

When someone once described herself as a food purist to me, I thought what does that mean? Not to identify with a particular way of eating, I have found that the simpler the dish-often the more profound it turn out to be!
