This Chanterelle mushroom pasta tart is a quick and easy recipe with a rustic look and meaty, spicy taste! It also has a “secret” ingredient which I’m sure you’ll love!
Chanterelles… I’ve heard about these mushrooms before but this year was the first time I cooked with them. I must say I completely fell in love with their taste! They’re the perfect mushrooms to cook with! Chanterelle mushrooms are so versatile and have a subtle earthy flavor I love. Too bad they are only available in late summer and beginning of autumn… I could eat them all year long!
Because I loved the Baked Pasta Tart with Smoked Tofu and Mushrooms so much, I decided to try a similar version but using Chanterelle mushrooms instead. Oh my, oh my, I am so glad I did! This Chanterelle mushroom pasta tart turned out perfectly! I also added some white wine for extra-flavor, as I love how well wine goes with mushrooms, and it turned this simple pasta casserole into a delicious treat!
I love rustic tarts with their earthy colors, homemade appearance, and lovely imperfections. This is the effect I wanted to achieve with this Chanterelle mushroom pasta tart too. Hope you like how it looks too! 😀
The recipe is gluten-free, but not vegan. I used eggs in the composition, but no dairy! Hope you’ll give it a try, you’ll love it I’m sure! 😀
