Tagliatelli Mushrooms and Asparagus with Garlic Breads

Ingredients for the recipe:
  • 300grs tagliatelli egg pasta
  • 250mls fresh cream
  • 1 egg yolk
  • 2-3 tablespoons of grated cheddar cheese
  • 2 garlic cloves
  • 8 mushrooms
  • 10 asparagus
  • 1 cup self raising flour
  • 1 tablespoon of butter
  • salt and pepper and a little olive oil

In a small saucepan boil the asparagus for about 10-15 minutes, when cooked remove them from the water and throw them in a (hot) wok pan with the mushrooms cut in halves with the chopped garlic plus a little butter and olive oil , season them with a little salt and pepper.

Cook them for aprox 3-5 minutes stirring occasionally, then add the cream, continue until the cream comes to a boil, then next add the egg yolk diluted in about three tablespoons of milk and add the cheese also, continue stirring it until the sauce thickens (about 2-3 minutes). After which you just serve.

While making the sauce, boil the tagliatelli in some water for about 12 minutes, then drain it and drizzle a little olive oil so that the pasta doesn't stick together, finally serve it with the previously made sauce on top.

The breads I made as follows. In a bowl, mix the flour with a pinch of salt and a little Luke warm water, until it was mixing it until it forms a ball, after which you kneed it and stretch it for about 10 minutes, then make small balls and put them on a floured tray and covered these with a cloth for 20 minutes, on the side in a little bowl crush a garlic with a little oil, which you then brush over the balls before placing them in the oven for about 15-20 minutes until golden brown, then serve them with the tagliatelle. 

Real good food like this has to be made and eaten, especially as is a quick homemade delicious dish.
