Pasta with Caesar mushrooms
The ancient Romans described amanita caesarea as a meal for gods. And you just have to try this poorly cut pasta with Caesar mushrooms to understand why.
Amanita caesarea is a huge edible mushroom with a distinctive orange cap, and whenever it is available, it has to be tried. I made it as a main course with saffron and homemade pasta in the fashionable ‘maltagliata’ style, where the pasta is cut in irregular strips and pieces. If you buy a good ready made pasta instead of making you own, the meal is ready to be served in less than 15 minutes.
