Aren’t at home date nights the best? Especially on occasions like Valentine’s Day, sometimes it’s nicer to opt for a fancy dinner at home and skip the crowded restaurants.

I developed this Three Mushroom Pappardelle for Two with my valentine in mind 🙂 Walter is my primary recipe tester and over the years I have found that any recipe with mushrooms gets the best reaction. It took me a while to figure it out, but at some point I realized “oh, you just love mushrooms”. I love mushrooms too, so once I made the discovery that mushrooms were the key to his belly I started cooking with them more and more.

Through my mushroom exploration I’ve discovered that we don’t just like white and portabella mushrooms, we love ALL kinds of mushrooms!

This red wine mushroom sauce is made with 3 different types of mushrooms – baby bella, shiitake and oyster. The different types of mushrooms bring different textures and flavors to the dish giving it more complexity.

What is not complex about this dish is how to make it!

I use a fresh pappardelle as opposed to dried, in my grocery store it is sold near the deli in a refrigerated section with the fancier prepared items. Fresh pappardelle is thicker and in my opinion tastes better. If you are using fresh it only takes a few minutes to cook and the red wine mushroom sauce comes together in only 10 minutes!

So… you could have a very presentable, very delicious date night dinner on the table in about 15 minutes!  Can’t beat that!
