METHOD

Cook the pasta in a pan of boiling salted water according to the packet instructions, then drain, reserving a mugful of cooking water. Meanwhile, sauté the shallots in olive oil for 5 minutes. Add the garlic and stir. Now add the mushrooms. Season with sea salt and pepper, and cook for roughly 5 minutes, stirring regularly. Add the porcini mushrooms along with 2 tablespoons of the liquid (don’t use the gritty bit at the bottom)

Toss the drained pasta into the mushroom pan with a splash of the reserved cooking water. Grate in most of the Parmesan and stir in the creme fraiche, gently heat and finish with a final grating of Parmesan.
