Useful Suggestions

The remaining parsley can be frozen in small food containers and used to season dishes where required. Porcini mushrooms shall not be rinsed under water to avoid their deterioration. Two eggs yield for tagliatelle is excessive for 2 servings and not enough for 4, but the recipe is so tasty that you certainly have a second helping

Suggested Wine

Our suggestion goes to a slightly structured red wine, like Grignolino or Pinot Nero dell’Oltrepò Pavese, which shall match with the delicate flavour of the porcini mushrooms. If you prefer a white wine instead, we suggest you try Sauvignon Friulano that, with its herbal notes, is fresh and delicate.
