FARFALLE WITH CHICKEN AND MUSHROOMS
In a large fry pan heat the olive oil and cook the onion and garlic on a medium heat until softened.
Drain and squeeze out the soaking liquid from the shiitake and porcini, retaining the liquid and add to the pan with the brown mushrooms and half the fresh sage.
Cook gently until the brown mushrooms have shrunk down and there is no water.
Add the soaking liquid and 3/4 of the fresh sage. Allow the mixture to reduce again to a semi-dry consistency.
Add the chicken and heat through well. Then cook the pasta to the packet instructions and drain well.
Combine the mushrooms and pasta and stir through the crème fraiche, salt and pepper. Serve with the remainder of the finely chopped fresh sage.
