This simple dish works best with the freshest mushrooms and sweet peas. Try a mixture of wild mushrooms for the most appeal.


  • 3 lb. Barilla Gluten Free Penne
  • 1 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 cups diced onion
  • 2 lb. sliced mixed mushrooms
  • 1 qt. heavy cream
  • 4 cups sweet peas
  • as needed salt
  • as needed black pepper
  • 2 cups grated Parmesan


Step 1

Cook the Barilla® pasta for half the time indicated on the package. Drain pasta and drizzle with some olive oil to prevent from sticking. Place pasta flat on sheet trays or hotel pans and cool in a blast chiller. Alternatively, cool it down in a walk-in cooler. Store in zip lock bags or sealed plastic container; refrigerate and use within several hours.

Step 2

For each serving, to order: Heat 2 tsp. oil and saute a generous 1 Tbsp. onion until it is slightly caramelized. Add 1 oz. mushrooms and saute for 5 minutes. Stir in 3 Tbsp. cream and 3 Tbsp. peas; season with salt and pepper and bring to a simmer.

Step 3

Reheat 1 1/4 cups pasta in simmering water. Drain and add it to the sauce. Toss and plate. Garnish with 1 Tbsp. Parmesan.
