Funghi Pasta Sauce

Keywords: mushroomsaucepasta

On winter days nothing can compare to a hot bowl of fresh pasta topped with a flavorful funghi sauce. Yet trying to make it at home can often result in a bland incarnation. But fear not  Sauce’s Frank Prisinzano  is here to help you avoid the pitfalls of a poorly made sauce and instead will help you create an umami-rich sauce that will have you licking the plate at the end.

There are a few secrets to a perfect funghi sauce and it starts (like most things) with butter. Beyond that, sourcing great mushrooms is a must. Prisinzano uses porcinis, chanterelles, and criminis. However, the most important ingredient is patience. Prisinzano believes that by letting the mushrooms sit in a pot with the lid on, it locks in all the mushrooms' natural flavors, leading to a perfect funghi sauce.

Watch the video above for the full recipe, and if you want fresh pasta to go with your sauce, you can go with a double-feature and watch his pasta-making demo as well.  And of course, you can always head over to the Prisinzanos' restaurant Sauce if you want it straight from the source.
