So, my boyfriend just got home and told me he'd like this for dinner, but I have no idea what it is. He said that it was bits of steak in a cream sauce with mushrooms over mostcatelli pasta. Sounds like stroganoff to me, so I was wondering if anyone had a recipe for an Italian style stroganoff to satisfy him.
Do you mean "Mostaccioli"?
Anyway, I've never had steak in a mushroom cream sauce over pasta before, but it sounds good!
Here's a creamy mushroom sauce recipe. Then I would grill steak to your liking, slice, and mix it all with the mostaccioli.
Pasta with White Mushroom Sauce Recipe
* 2 tablespoons fresh chopped parsley
* salt and pepper to taste
* 1 pound fresh mushrooms sliced evenly
* 1/2 cup white wine
* 1 pound pasta, cooked and drained
* 1/4 cup butter
* grated cheese
* 1 cup heavy cream
Sautee mushrooms in melted butter until golden. Stir in wine, parsley, salt and pepper. Cook for 10 minutes on medium heat. Add heavy cream and take off heat. Serve over hot pasta with cheese on the side.
I hope this helps. Let me know if it was what your boyfriend was looking for.
Oh man, you have no idea. He totally fooled me at the begining of the relationship, I thought he could cook because he knew how to make chicken parmesan and it was really good. Since I do most of the cooking just by default, the subject doesn't come up much, but one night I came home and found him making a grilled cheese sandwhich and putting the sandwich in the pan without buttering the bread. Then last night he told me he had no idea how to broil a steak. It's just so odd to me that he has no idea how to do the simple things.
Anyway, thanks for the recipe. I'm going to do it tommorow night and see how it comes out.
A man who doesn't know how to cook meat! I learned that at 12 years old. Many summer nights cooking on the grill for my family. Dad told me that all men should be able to cook meat, but never do "Mom's" cooking. Ha! I spent more time with Mom learning her recipes.
Hope it all turns out well. I'm on my way to the store for egg noodles.
04/21Aha! Ok, so now I know exactly what it is he wanted:
Mostacioli di Bari
Delicate pieces of filet mignon and fresh mushrooms
simmered in a delicious creamy gorgonzola brandy sauce,
served on a bed of penne pasta.
So, the sauce I got here was pretty good, but not what he was hoping for. Now, I found this recipe for a gorgonzola sauce:
1 1/2 cups dry white wine
1 1/4 cups heavy cream
2 tablespoons grated Parmesan cheese
4 ounces Gorgonzola cheese, crumbled
1 pinch ground nutmeg
black pepper to taste
And what I'm wondering is if substituting brandy for the wine would produce the sauce in the above description or would I just end up making a horrible mess of it?
