While it is especially common in Liguria, Piedmont and Emilia, where most of the porcini mushrooms are gathered, this recipe in fact is part of traditional Italian cuisine.


  • 2 2/3 cups all-purpose flour
  • 2 whole eggs plus 2 egg yolks, beaten together
  • 1/2 cup olive oil, divided
  • Salt
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 1 garlic clove, peeled and bruised
  • 6 1/2 ounces porcini mushrooms, thinly sliced
  • 1 sprig flat-leafed parsley, chopped
  • Freshly ground pepper


Heap the flour on a pastry board and make a well in the center. Add the beaten eggs and yolks, 2 tablespoons of the olive oil and a pinch of salt. Work the mixture into a soft, smooth dough and roll out into a very thin sheet. Roll up the sheet and with a sharp knife cut into tagliatelle not more than 1/4 inch in width. Lay the pasta out on a board sprinkled with flour to dry for 1 hour before cooking.

In a skillet combine the remaining oil, the butter and garlic. Cook until the garlic colors; discard the garlic. Add the porcini and cook until browned. Taste for salt.

Cook the tagliatelle in boiling, salted water until al dente; drain. Add to the skillet along with the parsley. Saute for 30 seconds. Season with pepper just before serving.
