Ben O'Donoghue

Ingredients:

Serves 4

  • 500gm field mushroom finely chopped
  • 2 cups green olives
  • 1/4 bunch mint
  • 1/4 bunch flat-leaf parsley

  • 2 fresh red chillies
  • Olive oil
  • 1-cup thick cream
  • 100gm Parmesan cheese

Method:

  1. In a thick bottomed pan heat a small amount of olive oil and sauté the chopped mushroom so they release their moisture and then add the chopped garlic and chopped green olives, cook until the liquid has evaporated so that the flavour is concentrated.
  2. Add the cream and reduce by 1/2 then add 1/2 the chopped herbs and reserve the rest for garnish.
  3. Cook the pasta as directed by the packet, then drain and add to the mushroom and olive mixture
  4. Mix the crumbled ricotta to the pasta mix and then season with the Parmesan cheese, salt and pepper.
  5. Serve garnished with the remainder of the chopped herbs and chopped red chilli and a squeeze of fresh lemon juice and a drizzle of olive oil.
