Skinny Mushroom Fettuccine with Mozzarella and Truffle Oil

User rating:

Ingredients

  • 1 cup Sorrento® Part Skim Mozzarella, diced
  • 12 oz. Fettuccine
  • 1/2 cup Porcini Mushrooms, dried
  • 3 tbs Olive Oil
  • 1 Onion, chopped fine
  • 1 cup Shitake Mushrooms, chopped
  • 2 cups Button Mushrooms, sliced
  • 3 cloves Garlic, crushed
  • 1 cup Pine Nuts, roasted
  • handful Basil Leaves, fresh
  • 1 tbs White Truffle Olive Oil

Directions

Cook fettuccine according to directions. Meanwhile, soak porcini mushrooms in 1/2 cup boiling water for 5 minutes. Drain mushrooms and save stock. Set aside. Heat a dry skillet over low-medium heat. Add pine nuts and stir constantly until golden brown. Transfer nuts to a bowl. Heat oil in same pan over medium heat. Add onion and cook for about 2 minutes. Add shitake and button mushrooms and sauté for 3-4 minutes. Stir in garlic and porcini mushrooms. Gradually add mozzarella and 3-5 tablespoons mushroom stock. Blend in the pine nuts, basil, and truffle oil. Serve over fettuccine.

The higher fat recipe version is a mushroom cream sauce, which uses ¾ cup heavy cream, ½ cup grated parmesan, and 4 Tbs. of butter, instead of 3 Tbs. of olive oil and 6 oz. of mozzarella cheese. The diced mozzarella takes the place of the cream sauce, adding another element of flavor and texture to the dish without the calories and fat of a cream sauce.

Tips

With these changes and using part skim mozzarella, this recipe has 11% fewer calories and 25% less fat per serving than original creamy version.*

*as compared to using whole milk cheeses
