It’s no secret that I absolutely love carbs. And there is no time that I love carbs more than in the middle of winter.
My idea of the perfect winter Saturday at home involves making a pot of this pasta, and curling up in bed with a massive bowl of it. And then, as a metaphorical middle finger to the world’s Banting worshippers, I get up and head back to the kitchen for seconds. Because you just can’t not.
This dish, while certainly not for the calorie conscious, is the epitome of simple comfort food. So simple, in fact, that I try and jazz it up a bit with a 50/50 mix of boring and fancy mushrooms (shitake and oyster mushrooms both worked very well) but it’s really up to you.
