instructions
Prepare the ingredients:
1 Prepare the ingredients:

Fill a large pot with salted water; cover and heat to boiling on high. Using a damp paper towel, gently brush off any dirt from the mushrooms. Thinly slice the mushrooms. Grate the Grana Padano cheese on the small side of a box grater.

Cook the pasta:
2 Cook the pasta:

Add the pasta to the pot of boiling water and cook, uncovered, 5 to 6 minutes, or until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Reserving 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water, drain thoroughly.

Cook the mushrooms:
3 Cook the mushrooms:

While the pasta cooks, in a large pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium-high until hot. Add the sliced mushrooms in an even layer. Cook, without stirring, 4 to 5 minutes, or until browned. Add as much of the red pepper flakes as you’d like, depending on how spicy you’d like the dish to be. Season with salt and pepper (if the pan seems dry, add a drizzle of olive oil). Cook, stirring frequently, 2 to 3 minutes, or until softened. Turn off the heat.

Finish & serve your dish:
4 Finish & serve your dish:

Add the cooked pasta and half the reserved pasta cooking water to the pan of cooked mushrooms. Cook on medium-high, stirring constantly, 1 to 2 minutes, or until the pasta is coated. Turn off the heat. Stir in the mascarpone cheese, salsa verde, and half the grated Grana Padano cheese (if necessary, gradually add the remaining pasta cooking water to ensure the pasta is thoroughly coated). Taste, then season with salt and pepper if desired. Serve the finished pasta garnished with the remaining grated Grana Padano cheese. Enjoy!
