Mushroom Cavatelli

Mushroom Cavatelliwith Mascarpone and Chives

Every season needs its own deliciously decadent pasta, and this one's dedicated to fall. Mini pasta shells known as cavatelli are tossed in a white wine–mushroom sauce made creamy with mascarpone cheese. An added burst of umami flavor comes from porcini mushroom powder, which is whisked into the pasta cooking water and used to thicken the dreamy sauce. Chives and a sprinkling of Parmesan cheese take this must-make meal to new heights.
