Ingredients

  • One 16-ounce package pappardelle nests or 1 recipe for Cracked Black Pepper Pasta
  • One 6-ounce piece pancetta, cut into cubes
  • 6 ounces fresh chestnut or cremini mushrooms, cleaned and finely sliced
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese
  • Freshly ground black pepper

Directions

Bring a large pot of water to the boil and cook the pappardelle according to the package directions. 

While the pasta is cooking, put a large skillet over medium-high heat. Cook the pancetta until it starts to brown, about 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook for 2 to 3 minutes, then add the cream. When the cream is hot, add the Parmesan and stir. 

Drain the pasta and add it to the skillet. Stir well and season with some pepper. I find it does not usually need salt because of the salty pancetta and Parmesan. Serve immediately. I like to serve it with an arugula salad.
