White bolognese - or bolognese bianco - is an Italian-style sauce made with cream in place of tomatoes. In tonight’s recipe we’re preparing a rich, creamy sauce with sausage meat, portobello mushrooms, carrots and an exquisite blend of spices including fennel, parsley and paprika. It’s served over long ribbons of tagliatelle and a handful of authentic Parmigiano Reggiano finishes the dish with an irresistible touch of cheese!

Start the bolognese
In a large high-sided pan, heat a drizzle of olive oil on medium. Add the carrots, mushrooms and onions; season with S&P. Cook, stirring frequently 4 to 6 minutes, until the mushrooms begin to brown. Add the sausage meat; season with the spice blend and S&P. Cook, stirring frequently, 4 to 6 minutes, until cooked through.

Cook the pasta
To the pot of boiling water, add the pasta and cook, 2 to 3 minutes, until al dente (still slightly firm to the bite). Drain the pasta, reserving ½ a cup of the pasta cooking water (double for 4 portions). Toss the pasta with a drizzle of olive oil to prevent sticking and set aside in a warm spot.

Finish & serve
Add the cooked pasta and Parmesan to the pan of sauce. Cook, stirring frequently, 1 to 2 minutes, until thoroughly coated; season with S&P to taste (if the pasta seems dry, gradually add the reserved pasta cooking water to achieve your desired consistency). Divide the finished pasta between your plates. Garnish with the parsley. Bon appétit!
