This easy pasta recipe is an excuse to buy wild mushrooms, available at many grocery stores these days. Or if you prefer white buttons, those will work well too. The creamy linguine is ready in 40 minutes, so it's quick enough for an easy weeknight recipe but it feels fancy enough for entertaining.

  • Meanwhile, heat oil and garlic in a large skillet over medium heat until fragrant, about 2 minutes. Add mushrooms, shallots and thyme and increase heat to high. Cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid the mushrooms release has evaporated and the mushrooms are starting to brown, 11 to 13 minutes.

  • Add wine to the pan and cook until it is reduced by about half, about 3 minutes. Stir in the reserved pasta water, sour cream (or crème fraîche), Parmesan, butter, salt and pepper. Add the pasta and toss to coat. Serve topped with more Parmesan and parsley, if desired.

This was excellent - left out the pasta water due to previous reviews. Read More

Loved it! Made it for a fall weekend lunch, and it hit the spot. Creamy, filling, just perfect. Your patience will be rewarded when reducing the wine and the pasta water, as it adds to the flavor and silkiness of the sauce. Delicious! Read More

I would make again and it was tasty. My four stars stem from how watery it was, and I even reduced the amount of pasta water I put it because I could see it wasn't reducing. Read More
