Mushroom Ragu Pappardelle Recipe

Mushroom Ragu Pappardelle Recipe

Okay, so the worst has happened: It's cold outside, and you're hungrier than ever. You love a good sandwich as much as the next person, but you're craving something more comforting like pasta. This is where a warm, cozy meal comes in. Step aside sandwich; enters Mushroom Ragu Pappardelle and trusted companion, De Grendel Rubaiyat!

Ragu typically has a meat-based sauce, but this one is entirely vegetarian. That said, you won’t believe how spot-on its meaty flavours are! The secret lies in the combination of woodsy portobello mushrooms and earthy herbs. Together, these two create a masterpiece, especially when paired with the Rubaiyat.

Make this for a crowd on a weekend or whip it up in no time for a midweek dinner. The best part? Save the leftovers for a delicious lunch!
