Yield: 6-8 Servings
Prep Time: 30 minutes
Cook Time: 1 Hour
Total Time: 1 1/2 hour


  • 1 pound mushrooms (½ shitake, ½ cremini), trimmed and quartered
  • 1 cup toasted walnuts
  • 1 yellow onion, quartered
  • 1 medium carrot, chopped
  • 1 medium stalk celery, chopped
  • 6 tablespoons olive oil, divided
  • 1 ¼ teaspoons kosher salt, divided
  • ½ cup dry white wine
  • ⅓ cup tomato paste
  • 2 cups vegetable stock
  • ¼ teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
  • ½ cup half-and-half
  • 1 pound tagliatelle or pappardelle pasta
  • Grated Parmesan cheese, for serving (as much as you like)


  1. Working in 2 batches, pulse mushrooms in a food processor until finely chopped. Transfer to a bowl. Add walnuts to food processor; pulse until finely chopped. Transfer to a medium bowl. Add onion, carrot, and celery to food processor; process until very finely chopped.
  2. Heat ¼ cup oil in a large skillet over medium-high. Add mushrooms in an even layer; cook, undisturbed, until browned in spots, about 8 minutes. Season with ½ teaspoon salt, toss and cook for 1 minute. Transfer to the bowl with walnuts. Reduce heat to medium. Add remaining 2 tablespoons oil to skillet. Stir in onion mixture and ¼ teaspoon salt; cook, stirring often, until mixture is golden and almost dry, 10 to 12 minutes. Stir in mushrooms and walnuts. Add wine and cook until absorbed, 2 to 3 minutes. Add tomato paste; cook, stirring, until combined, about 5 minutes. Add stock; simmer over low, stirring once or twice, until sauce is very thick, 35 to 40 minutes. Add pepper, remaining ½ teaspoon salt, and half-and-half; cook, stirring, for 2 minutes.
  3. Toss pasta with the desired amount of sauce and serve with cheese.  
  4. Pair with a mixed green salad, toasted baguette, and Carhartt 2019 Pinot Noir for a fabulous vegetarian meal!
