Tonight’s pasta dish gets its layers of rustic flavor from cool-weather favorites like earthy mushrooms, anise-like fennel and hakurei turnips (a small Japanese variety with a delicate taste). To elevate our sautéed vegetables and hearty fettuccine with a touch of richness, we’re tossing it all with butter and creamy mascarpone—a type of Italian cheese famous for its light, whipped texture and delicate sweetness.

Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Wash and dry the fresh produce. Heat a large pot of salted water to boiling on high. Cut the mushrooms into ¼-inch-thick pieces. Peel and mince the garlic. Peel and small dice the shallot. Cut off and discard any fennel stems. Halve the fennel lengthwise; cut out and discard the core, then thinly slice the bulb. Cut off and discard the ends of the turnips; peel and quarter the turnips, then thinly slice crosswise. Finely chop the parsley leaves and stems.

Brown the mushrooms:
2 Brown the mushrooms:

In a large pan (nonstick, if you have one), heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the mushrooms and cook, stirring occasionally, 3 to 4 minutes, or until browned. Season with salt and pepper. Add half the garlic and half the shallot. Cook, stirring occasionally, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened; season with salt and pepper to taste. Transfer to a plate. Wipe out the pan.

3 Cook the vegetables:

In the same pan, heat 1 tablespoon of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the fennel, turnips, remaining garlic and remaining shallot; season with salt and pepper. Cook, stirring occasionally, 8 to 10 minutes, or until lightly browned and softened. Turn off the heat.

Cook the pasta:
4 Cook the pasta:

While the vegetables cook, add the pasta to the pot of boiling water. Cook 9 to 10 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving ½ cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly.

Finish the pasta:
5 Finish the pasta:

Add the cooked pasta, browned mushrooms, butter, half the parsley and half the reserved pasta cooking water to the pan. Cook on medium-high, stirring vigorously, 1 to 2 minutes, or until thoroughly combined. Add the cheese and stir to thoroughly combine.
