Cold days are here, which means it’s the best time to indulge yourself with a hot bowl of homemade pasta.
With all seasonal fall foods like mushrooms and chestnuts these tagliatelle is luxury in the bowl.
Trust me, with homemade semolina flour pasta (tagliatelle, fettuccine or pappardelle are the best) that texture, that tiny little bite to a hand-rolled pasta cooked “al dente” paired with the sauce is nothing short of heavenly 😊
If you have any roasted meat leftovers (any kind of meat) from the holiday table even better. Cut that meat in stripes, use some meat sauce from the bottom of the pan, then toss in the rest of the ingredients as per recipe and ENJOY!
Seriously, these tagliatelle were soo-soooo good that I’d even forgot about the Parmesan cheese. Which you imagine brings any bowl of pasta one level up.
So Parm or no Parm, you gotta make this yumminess!!
By the way, if you have any Funghi Trifolati – Sauteed Mushrooms Italian Style, you’re already one step ahead 😉
Use them for this recipe!

If you happen to have any roasted meat leftovers feel free to use those.
Otherwise use fresh meat.

Wait for garlic to become fragrant. Add meat stripes.
Cook cook for a few minutes until meat is lightly brown on the sides.
Add butter and mushrooms slices.
Add salt and pepper to taste. Finally add dry white wine.
Cook until there’s little to none liquid left.
Top with chopped fresh parsley, peeled chestnuts and give everything the final stir.
Boil fresh egg pasta according to direction on the package or until ‘al dente’.
Reserve a cup of cooking liquid.
Toss pasta in the pan with mushroom and meat sauce.
Add some cooking liquid if it needs more moisture.
Top with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and serve!
Note 2: If you don’t have fresh chestnuts or they out of season you can use store bought roasted & peeled chestnuts instead. Steep them in hot water before use if you like a softer, like freshly boiled chestnuts bite.
Isn’t that fall dreams in a bowl? 😊
