“Tagliatelle al Vino Bianco on Funghi” from “Two Greedy Italians”

Tom: So you made this pasta yourself then, with white wine?

Kirstin: Yup….oh no, sorry. I had to do a million other things today. So that promise of making you pasta is on hold again. But I will do it. Honest.

Tom: Oh don’t worry about it. Making your own pasta is over-rated. We did it when we were young.

Kirstin: But now we have a special thing for the Kitchen Aid to make it easier. So I really do want to do it. I just need a time machine to add more hours to the day.

Tom: Good point. We really should try it again. Anyway, this sauce was good!

Kirstin: It was. But you know what: it wasn’t as good as the River Cafe mushroom pasta recipe.

Tom: What’s that got in it that this doesn’t?

Kirstin: Lemon. And sage. And double cream.

Tom: Ah, yes. See what you mean. This was pretty meaty, though. Even Oscar was howling for some!

Kirstin: This was pretty good, but it just wasn’t as good as the River Cafe one.

Tom: This one was less rich.

Kirstin: I like the other one more.

Tom: I’d be happy with either.

Kirstin: I like the other one more. It’s more filling. And yummy.

Tom: Fair enough. So is this the general theme for this book: Quite good, but not as good as the River Cafe?

Kirstin: No. There is no theme. We’re just trying the book. Nothing can be as good as the River Cafe when it comes to Italian cooking, but I still like to try other Italian cook books anyway because you never know.

Tom: Ah. Yes. Of course.

Kirstin: I really fancy an amaretto sour right now.

Tom: Ooh, yes! Right. I’m on the case.

Kirstin: Do we have any limes then?…
