Umami Mushroom Pappardelle

Few things are more comforting on a chilly autumn day than a bowl of pasta. This creamy umami mushroom pappardelle doesn’t disappoint. The rich umami flavour from the miso is perfectly balanced with the creaminess of the pasta sauce, along with the fresh parsley to brighten the other flavours.
