Tagliatelle with Portobello Mushroom and Mangetout Casserole

That's a long name isn't it? But I can reassure you the taste is as just yummy! The smell of the dry basilic is still lingering in my nose! I don't really have much to say about this recipe since, I just happened to gather what I already had at home and came up with this! A little bit creamy, but dry as well since it's a casserole, very well seasoned...scrumptious!

Try it out and let me know your thoughts!

Happy Baking!

  • Baking tray (Im using a 9"x12")

Ingredients:
  • 160g of tagliatelle / 6 balls
  • 180g of portobello mushrooms
  • 50g of mangetout
  • 1/2 tsp of dried basilic
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup / 113g of butter or margarine if you would like

Method:


  • Preheat oven to 350ºF/175ºC. Lightly grease a baking tray with cooking spray.
  • In a large saucepan, bring the tagliatelle to a boil, add a pinch of salt and a little bit of oil, about a 2 teaspoons.

  • In the meanwhile, thinly slice the portobello mushroom.

  • Finally add the mozzarella cheese (3/4 cup).

  • At this point, add the portobello mushroom and the mangetout to the sauce.
  • And finally, pour the sauce onto the tagliatelle.
