Preparation of Paccheri with Mushrooms and Cuttlefish

The sauce is cooked at the moment, while we cook the paccheri, always remember to set aside a small bowl with the cooking water to whisk the pasta in the sauce.

For the mix of mushrooms to prepare the sauce I chose porcini, pioppini and pleorotus a trio that I must say I love very much. These three types of mushrooms give creaminess, flavour, and substance to the sauce, since it’s a white sauce. The cuttlefish gives the final touch, small and tender, they are perfect for quick cooking and releasing their water they will create a tasty and delicious cream with the mushrooms that will wrap the paccheri.

To complete the Paccheri With Mushrooms And Cuttlefish, just a sprinkle of chopped parsley that goes perfectly with both fish and mushrooms.
