Morels and Pasta? Yes Please! We've been using this recipe for 6 years now and it seriously never gets old! - Baron S, College Park, PA

The first thought upon finding or buying morels is "how should I prepare this?". Typically, people settle on preparing a robust dinner, using the Morels as the star of the dish or a tasty supplement. This Chili-Fried Morel Recipe is a great example of that, having been enjoyed by thousands. Fried Morels are clearly fan-favorite, but where's the love for pasta!?

Morel Mushrooms and pasta were a match made in heaven, and we'll stand by statement that until the day we die. Why? It is unbelievably delicious. The meaty, earthy texture of a morel is the perfect contrast to the creamy, rich flavors of pasta, especially when it includes a creamy cheese sauce and a little bit of zing. We could go on about this forever, so let's just hop right in....

The Recipe: Creamy Morel Mushroom Pasta:

Cooking Time = 15 Minutes

Morel Mushroom Pasta


  • 12 oz of penne pasta or bowtie pasta

  • 1 tablespoon of salted butter

  • 1 cup of finely diced onion

  • 1 clove of minced garlic

  • 1 Jalapeño or bell pepper

  • About 10 medium sized fresh morels (or reconstituted)

  • 1 tablespoons dry marsala wine (optional)

  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme or basil (thyme preferred)

  • 1/2 teaspoon salt

  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • 1/2 cup heavy cream

  • 2 tablespoons Grated Parmesan

  • 1 teaspoon of olive oil


  1. Set a big pot of salted water to boil. When boiling, add the pasta of your choice and cook until the pasta is to your preferred consistency.

  2. While the pasta is cooking, sauté the onion, jalapeño, and garlic in the butter until the onions are semi-transparent, and until the garlic is soft (about 2-3 minutes at medium-to-high heat)

  3. Toss in the whole morels mushrooms, marsala wine (optional), thyme / basil, salt, and black pepper. Bring the contents in the pan to a low boil or just heat them in the pan for about 5 mins

  4. In another bowl, stir together the heavy cream and parmesan cheese. Add into the pan with mushrooms and cook for 45 more seconds.

  5. Then, all you have to do is combine the contents in the pan with a the pasta, and voila! We like to drizzle some olive oil for added healthy, but thats really up to you.

  6. Typically, this can serve 3-6 people depending on appetites!
