In northern Italy, the influences of neighboring Austria and Switzerland are apparent in dishes like this pasta featuring Savoy cabbage and mushrooms in a light wine sauce. Serve with Caesar salad and bread sticks. Source: EatingWell Magazine, March/April 2009

Ingredients

Directions

  • Bring a large pot of water to a boil. Cook pasta for 4 minutes. Add cabbage and continue cooking, stirring occasionally, until the pasta and cabbage are tender, about 4 minutes more. Reserve 1/2 cup of the cooking liquid and drain the pasta and cabbage.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, onion and garlic and cook, stirring often, until the mushrooms are tender and beginning to release their liquid, about 5 minutes.

  • Whisk wine and flour in a small bowl. Add to the pan along with salt and pepper; cook, stirring, until the mixture thickens, about 1 minute. Add tomatoes and cook until just beginning to break down, about 1 minute more.

  • Return the pasta and cabbage to the pot. Add the mushroom sauce, the reserved cooking liquid, cheese and sage; gently toss to combine.

I really enjoyed this dish. A good filling vegetarian meal. I used sharp cheddar and didn't really notice the flavor so I would leave it out next time and save some calories. I used presliced portobellos and didn't bother to de-gill them. April Union ME Read More

Our family including three of our four children (the non-mushroom eater was at a friend's) absolutely loved this dish. It was straightforward to make and reminded us of the pasta dishes served at Sarducci's in Montpelier Vermont (a favorite local restaurant).One thing we will try next time is assembling without the cheese shredding the cheese on top and placing under the broiler to melt.

I thought this was a waste of expensive tasty cheese. I usually love EW recipes but the consistency of this really grossed me out. This would probably be better without the cabbage but it was still a little dull. Anonymous Read More

This was a bit more trouble than I usually take on a busy weeknight but I made it this evening and it was superb! Took lots of time to get the fettucine done (way more than the 8 minutes in the recipe) and scraping out the "gills" on 4 large portobello caps took a while but the results were well worth the effort. My husband and I both had to have seconds! Janet Mace Orange CA Read More

My fiance and I liked this recipe. It was not hard to put together and it tasted good. The only issue I had was that the cheese I used (smoked Gouda) didn't melt and I had expected it to. We would eat it again. Read More

This is the best dish I have ever made! It was super delicious and my fiancee who doesn't really like mushrooms loved this. I did make a few changes. I did not use cabbage. Also I didn't have dried sage so I used dried rubbed sage which tasted great. I bought regular gouda cheese instead of smoked on accident and it ended up coming out fantastic. This is such an easy and good recipe. Highly recommended! Read More

This dish was really tasty. It looked beautiful with all the different colours and textures. I love the idea of adding the cabbage to the pasta water. The addition of the smoked cheese was an unusual and tasty addition. My family enjoyed this although some thought it was a little light. Ontario Canada Read More

We are working to incorporate more vegetarian dishes to our dinners and this recipe was a winner! We didn't add the cheese (milk allergy) and served it with crusty bread with the olive oil/balsamic dipping side on the same dish to give a little bit of spice stir in. The prep work was a lot but I will try to do this at another time because the actual tossing together of the ingredients was easy and a delicious combination. Family w/ 3 kids (1 3 5) Read More

It was a good idea.... It was a good idea adding the cabbage to this pasta. I followed the recipe to the T and found it to be bland. In the end I added some pesto and capers which made it edible. Pros: lots of veggies fun to make Cons: very bland Read More
