Ithink I needed some attention. You see… I am the leader of which would ordinarily make me the head honcho. But, at photo shoots I play the role of both director and dishwasher / prep cook / photo assistant. And, two years into this with the rest of the shoot team all working together beautifully, I’m actually just the low man on everyone’s totem pole.

So, when Chris stepped outside to work the grill, I commandeered the stove for this morel pasta dish. Any mushroom will do and the truffle butter is an optional (but delicious) addition.

  • ½ lb Fresh Morel Mushrooms, sliced
  • 1 small Shallot, chopped
  • 2 cloves of Garlic, sliced
  • Leaves from 2 sprigs of Fresh Thyme
  • 1/2 cup White Wine
  • 2 tbsp Butter
  • 1 tbsp Olive Oil
  • Salt & Pepper to Taste
  • 3 sprigs Fresh Parsley, chopped
  • Optional: 1 tbsp Truffle Butter



Get the olive oil hot in a skillet over medium heat.

Add the morels, shallot, garlic, thyme leaves, and salt and pepper.

Sauté for about 10 minutes or until the mushrooms have given off their liquid and most of it has evaporated.

Deglaze the pan with the white wine. Simmer the wine until it has almost completely evaporated.

Add the butter, chopped parsley and (if desired) truffle butter. You can add some more olive oil too, depending on how saucy you want it to be.

Stir to melt in the butter.

Toss with some pasta (pictured below with gluten free pasta) and then add some additional sauce to the top. If you have it on hand, add some grated Parmigiano Reggiano and chopped parsley or whatever other Italian herbs you have on hand.

    I tried morels for the first time a few weeks ago and absolutely loved them.
