Confit Of Exotic Mushrooms With Pasta Rags

  • Yield: 4 servings

Ingredients

  • Salt
  • 1/2 pound fresh pasta sheets torn or cut into random pieces, or 1/2 pound lasagna sheets, broken into pieces
  • 2 tablespoons oil from Duck Confit
  • Freshly ground white pepper to taste
  • Confit of Exotic Mushrooms
  • 2 tablespoons minced shallots
  • 1 tablespoon minced garlic
  • 1/4 pound freshly grated Parmigiano-Reggiano cheese, plus more for garnish
  • Freshly ground black pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon white truffle oil (available in specialty food stores)
  • 1 small fresh black truffle (available in specialty food stores), brushed clean
  • 1 tablespoon snipped fresh chives

Directions

  • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Drop the pasta into the hot water and cook until tender, 3 to 4 minutes, or longer for the dried lasagna. Drain. Transfer the pasta to a large mixing bowl and toss with 1 tablespoon of the confit oil, then season with salt and white pepper. Set aside.
  • Heat the remaining tablespoon confit oil in a large sautÈ pan over medium heat. Add the mushroom confit and cook, stirring, for 1 minute. Add the shallots and garlic and cook, stirring, for another minute. Remove from the heat and pour over the pasta. Add the 1/4 pound grated cheese and toss to mix evenly, then season with salt and black pepper. Drizzle with the truffle oil.
  • To serve, mound the pasta in the center of a large serving platter. Shave the truffle over the pasta and garnish with more cheese and the chives.
