Balsamic Mushroom Pasta using less than 10 ingredients and ready in under 10 minutes! A tangy tasting ‘aceto balsamico’ as is known in Italy. This recipe is for foodies like me that truly appreciate the boldness that food has to offer. You know that complex but really simple taste? Just enough zing to lighten up your taste buds? That is exactly what you can expect from this balsamic mushroom pasta recipe!
Sometimes we have to prepare a meal that is just for us and this was for me.
My husband doesn’t eat mushrooms so when I cook this dish I make just enough for myself to eat over 2 meals because I don’t mind pasta the next day with a freshen up. You could substitute the mushroom with some other veggie but it just seems to fit so well with this recipe. Tagliatelle is always the best choice for mushrooms as well and the balsamic and fresh herbs know exactly where and how to hold onto the tagliatelle without much effort. A match made in heaven so I was not prepared to make substitutions.
Every now and then we must be selfish in order to be able to give more tomorrow for how else would we keep giving.
Every time I make a pasta meal and that’s the majority of our meals they almost never have mushrooms in but this one, this balsamic mushroom tagliatelle does and it’s amazing! Another fantastic way that I love using mushrooms on toast, oh my goodness take a look at this not so ordinary tomato, mushroom and basil pesto toast!!
BALSAMIC VINEGAR / GLAZE
Balsamic vinegar which is really dark in color originates from Italy so I remember falling in love with the affordability of balsamic vinegar while living there because at the time it wasn’t as affordable in South Africa. Now it is more affordable with loads of brands offers. Balsamic glaze is a bit more expensive but so worth it because it’s not like milk? You don’t use it every day and there are not many recipes that call for it, unless you have decided to make this balsamic mushroom pasta of mine and I hope that you do.
