Oven-Baked Portobello and Chestnut Mushrooms with a Goat’s Cheese Sauce

Tonight I felt like eating something with pasta that had a lot of flavour. Since I love goat’s cheese and mushrooms I decided to make a goat’s cheese sauce and bake some mushrooms in the oven. I made my own pasta since I love fresh pasta, but you could use whatever pasta you want.

I would recommend that you use a wider pasta than spaghetti so that you get the pasta to pick up a lot of the sauce. Pappardelle or tagliatelle, which I made, is good for this dish. The sauce gets a lot of flavour from the goat’s cheese and the mushrooms were crispy and buttery. A perfect pasta dish, easy to make and delicious 🙂

Ingredients Serves 2
Cooking time: 40 mins

  • 200 g durum flour
  • 2 eggs
  • 2 portobello mushrooms
  • 5 chestnut mushrooms
  • 300 ml cream
  • 1 onion
  • 3 cloves of garlic
  • 20 g butter
  • 50 g goat’s cheese
  • salt
  • pepper
  • olive oil
  • Set oven to 250°C

  1. If you are making your own pasta, see the steps here. (Remember that making your own pasta will add to the overall cooking time.)
  2. Cut the mushrooms in smaller pieces.
  3. Put them in an oven-proof dish.
  4. Chop one clove of garlic and sprinkle on top.
  5. Cut the butter in smaller pieces and put on top of the mushrooms.
  6. Add salt, pepper and some olive oil.
  7. Bake in the oven for 15 mins.
  8. Slice the onion thinly.
  9. Chop two cloves of garlic.
  10. Fry the garlic and onion in some olive oil on a low heat in a saucepan until the onion is soft.
  11. Pour the milk into the saucepan and let it come to a boil. Take it off the heat.
  12. Add 40 g of goat’s cheese.
  13. Either use a mixer or food processor to blend the mix until smooth. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  14. Prepare the pasta.
  15. Boil the pasta.
  16. Drain the pasta and add it to the sauce.
  17. Let the pasta soak up the sauce for a few minutes.
  18. Put some pasta and sauce on a plate.
  19. Add some of your baked mushrooms and a few slices of goat’s cheese.
  20. Enjoy!

      You should! It is so easy to make pasta. I made this pasta in less than 20 mins 🙂 The dough doesn’t need to rest if you use it straight away. Good luck if you do buy a pasta machine. Just ask for more tips if you want. /Sofi
