Mushroom Pappadelle with Parsley and Chives

Mushroom Pappadelle with Parsley and Chives
It’s was nine thirty in the morning and I was stress eating peanut butter cups, (you know the amazing dark chocolate ones from Trader Joe’s). Anyway, we were in the midst of replacing part of our plumbing which is under the house with access in a small crawl space outside two of the bedrooms windows. What makes this whole mess even more stressful is the realization that  sometimes replacing one pipe could cause more damage to another…….we are just wishing for the best. Enough of this as mixing food with certain  subjects is probably a big no no.

Maitake and Shitake Mushrooms
Anyway, I knew that something special was needed for dinner that night. After visiting the mushroom vendor at Newport’s farmers market, I knew at once this meal would fit the bill as it was easy to make, comforting and most of all delicious!

Along the way I discovered a love for baking. Now a couple times a month you might see some type of sweet pie or treat.

  6. Honestly, this is our favorite kind of pasta. Simple, fresh, elegant. Whenever mushrooms are available at the farmers market, this is what we have for dinner – and ours is almost identical, minus the garlic. Have you ever tried serving mushrooms with nepitella? It's known as catmint in our gardens. We were taught by end of the lease Italian friend that they use it with sautéed mushrooms. It's really quite wonderful, and a very different flavor than we are all used to.

  20. Oh gosh...plumbing issues. We had a leaky pipe last year, and it took us about 3 months to figure out exactly where the leak was. We were trying everything under the sun to find it...but you know how water is. Anyways, I love this quick and easy pasta dish. Total comfort food right there! I hope your plumbing issues get resolved soon! :-)
