Pappardelle with Porcini and Portobello Mushrooms
I love the woodsy taste of porcini mushrooms. In fact they're my favorite mushroom and I always look for ways to incorporate them into different dishes. Instead of a white sauce, I thought a light tomato sauce would give this dish a wonderful comforting feel and I find that thicker pappardelle really do a great job at picking up the sauce.
