Alaska morels in pasta are just what you were looking for if you need a change this week. Don’t settle for another boring dinner. Why not try something new that is delicious and easy to make?
Let’s get started!
You will first need to slice your morels into smaller pieces. This mushroom is very delicate and soft, so it makes for a great addition to a pasta dish. However, other possible types of mushrooms include porcini, oyster, portobello, and shiitake.
Scallions and leeks are a great addition in terms of flavor, but also texture. You can use other vegetables instead if you need to, though, such as onions, shallots, celery, or green bell peppers.
When it comes to the sauce, you will need to find champagne, sour cream, whipping cream, and butter. If you can’t use real champagne, go with champagne vinegar, or white wine vinegar. You can also use another alcohol, like a dry white wine or dry vermouth. If you need alternatives to sour cream and whipping cream, try half and half, milk, or coconut milk. If you can’t use butter either, try vegetable oil and as a last resort, use olive oil, but be careful, as it may alter the final flavor.
In terms of seasoning, you will need lemon basil, pepper, and salt. You can also add parsley, garlic, oregano, and thyme. If you want more acid, add a hint of lemon juice as well.
Angel hair pasta is a fantastic choice, as it is soft, delicate, and thin, always sharing the spotlight with the morels. Other types of pasta to use include rotini, penne rigate, fettuccine, and rigatoni.
You are now ready to start cooking Alaska Morels in Pasta and prepare a tasty meal in only a few minutes! To make the meal more satisfying, consider adding chicken or shrimp, or even more mushrooms!
