Preparation

Step 1: The pasta

Heat some water with a little salt. Once the water boils, add the pasta. Cook them as directed on the package.

You can use any type of pasta: spaghetti, fusilli, orecchiette, casarecce etc. For this recipe, I used casarecce!

Step 2: Mushrooms

Chop the garlic. Wash the mushrooms and cut them into halves or quarters.

Then heat a little olive oil in a pan over medium heat. Add the garlic, then, after about a minute, the mushrooms. Garlic must not darken!

Step 3: Kale

First, wash and dry the kale. Cut it into pieces. Then add it to the mushrooms. Kale should not cook too long to keep it firm.

Add a pinch of dried chilli. Add salt and pepper.

I like that my kale stays crunchy. To do this, I add half of the kale at the start of cooking and the rest 1 minute before the end. The second half should be cut finer because it does not cook for long.

Step 4: The sauce

Once the pasta is almost cooked (about 1 minute before the pasta is finished cooking), add the crème fraiche. Stir well.

Before draining the pasta, take a glass of pasta water (about 10 cl). Add the pasta water to the sauce. Drain the pasta and add it directly to the pan.

Step 4: Presentation

Place a portion of the dough on a plate. Sprinkle with coarsely chopped toasted hazelnuts. Add Parmesan as you wish!
