Wild Mushroom Agnolotti with Sage Cream Sauce

April 22, 2011

Celebrate Earth Day and eat mushrooms.  I did not make the pasta, in fact I have never made pasta.  But I do buy Buitoni’s pasta and it is extremely good (and I have spent many years in Italy, therefore I consider that a recommendation).  So spend the time making a luscious “sauce to die for” and enjoy your dinner in moments.  I have beautiful fresh sage in my garden and it makes a rich and fragrant sauce with cream and butter.  This combination is also nice for a pasta course or as a side dish. “Mangia”.  Buitoni does not pay me and I do not speak for them, but I recently entered a contest they had for a trip for two to Italy, which I did not win I am sad to say, but they sent me a beautiful calendar that I will enjoy all year.  Thanks @Buitoni and follow them if you enjoy Twitter, maybe you will be the next winner of a “Trip to Italy”.
