Gennaro's Garlic Mushroom Tagliatelle Recipe

Garlicky mushrooms and fresh herbs tossed through freshly cooked tagliatelle. Recipe from Italian chef Gennaro Contaldo for Bertolli.

Pasta. It's a staple in our house. It's quick, filling and tasty.

Penne with a fresh tomato and basil sauce, spaghetti with a rich bolognaise sauce, farfalle with a creamy mushroom sauce and lots of fresh herbs, shell pasta with roasted vegetables or belly button pasta salad with pesto, sundried tomatoes, roast peppers and fresh basil.

Are you in the mood for pasta now?

This simple, but satisfying pasta dish comes from the Bertolli website. It's an authentic Italian dish from Gennaro Contaldo and made with Bertolli with Butter. Garlicky mushrooms and fresh herbs tossed through freshly cooked tagliatelle.

I cooked some extra mushrooms with olive oil for Graham and added a little wine to the sauce, just because I couldn't resist.
