Ingredients
  • 2 tbsp butter, (30 grams)
  • 200 grams fresh chanterelle, cleaned
  • 12 stalks green asparagus, trimmed and cut into 1 1/2 to 2 inches
  • 2 to 3 tbsp creme fraiche (or sour cream)
  • 175 grams tagliatelle
  • salt and pepper, to season
  • freshly-cracked black pepper
  • extra-virgin olive oil, optional
Instructions
  1. Prepare tagliatelle as per package instructions. Mine normally takes 6 minutes, but I always make sure I only cook it for 5 minutes.

  2. While waiting for the pasta water to boil, melt butter in a medium to large pan, over medium high heat.

  3. Add the asparagus and cook for around 2 minutes. Add the chanterelle and mix. Cook for 4 minutes.

  4. Add crème fraiche and cook for 2 to 3 more minutes. Season with salt and pepper.

  5. Add the cooked tagliatelle. Mix to combine and properly coat the pasta with the sauce. Take off the heat after a minute.

  6. Transfer to serving plates and add some freshly-cracked black pepper on top. Drizzle some extra virgin olive oil, if desired.  
  7. Serve.
