  • 1/2 454g bag of Kaslo Sourdough Linguini
  • 4c. assorted B.C. wild mushrooms (such as Button, Cremini, Lion’s Mane, Chanterelle, and Oyster)
  • 1c. Heavy cream
  • 2tbsp. Preferred butter or oil
  • 3 Cloves fresh garlic
  • 1/2c. Beef or vegetable broth
  • 3/4c. Fresh grated parmesan
  • Fresh thyme
  • Salt, to taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • Optional: 4tbsp. additional parmesan for topping
  • Optional: 1tsp. truffle oil, drizzled over each plate


  1. Bring a medium-sized pot of water to boil. Cook linguini according to package instructions, about 6-8 minutes for the perfect al dente bite. Strain, return to pot (without rinsing), cover, and set aside.
  2. In a large saucepan, melt butter and add 4 cups of thinly sliced mushrooms. Sauté over medium-high heat roughly 4-5 minutes per side, until crispy and golden brown. Crush garlic cloves directly into the pan, and sauté 1-2 minutes along with a pinch of salt and pepper (taking care not to burn garlic).
  3. Lower heat to medium-low and pour in heavy cream and parmesan cheese. Heat through, about 1 minute. Slowly whisk in beef broth, and bring mixture to a gentle simmer on minimum, about 2-3 minutes.
  4. Add cooked linguini to the pan, and heat through. Plate immediately, topping with plenty of fresh thyme, pepper, and more parmesan if desired. For an extra indulgent mushroom flavour, add a drizzle of high-quality truffle oil to each plate.
  5. Enjoy alongside a crisp and dry white wine, such as a Chardonnay or Sauvignon Blanc – your taste buds will be delighted at this pairing! For a dessert to follow, consider serving a white chocolate brownie topped with vanilla ice cream, or individual crème caramels.
