Cilindri di Ricotta al Fungo e Tartufo | Truffle Mushroom Ricotta Cylinders

One thing I dearly miss about living in Italy is the ability to buy several varieties of fresh truffles and mushrooms throughout the year. At home in California, I sometimes have to resort to imported White Truffle Butter, available at gourmet grocers. It is an excellent alternative to the real deal when you just have to have something truffle. I love to pair anything truffle with a big, bold glass of Sangiovese.  Try Poggio Grande’s Piano, exclusively available in the US through Yours Truly Wine.

Ingredients

3 cups Mixed Mushrooms, washed, dried, and sliced

1 Shallot, minced

6 tablespoons, Imported White Truffle Butter, I like Urbani

1/4 cup Imported Ricotta Cheese or Kite Hill Vegan Ricotta Cheese

1/2 cup Pecorino or Violife Plant-Based Parmesan Cheese, grated

Splash of White Wine

Pinch of Sea Salt and Black Pepper

12 Lasagna Sheets, boiled as directed

Directions

Preheat the oven to 375 degrees. Bring a large pot of water to a boil, add a pinch of sea salt and the pasta sheets, cooking in batches if needed to not overcrowd the pasta. Meanwhile, add 3 tablespoons of truffle butter to a saute pan over medium heat. Once the butter is melted add the shallots and mushrooms. Cook for 5 minutes, then add a splash of wine. Cook until the wine is reduced. Transfer the mushroom mixture to a large bowl, fold in the Ricotta and Pecorino cheese, and sea salt and pepper to taste. Drain the pasta when al dente. Place the pasta sheets on a clean work surface. To construct the cylinders, spoon the cheesy mixture onto the end of the pasta sheet, Carefully roll up the pasta into a cylinder. Repeat. Place each cylinder into a greased baking dish. Add the remaining truffle butter on top of the cylinders along with the remaining Pecorino cheese. Bake until golden brown on top, about 20 minutes. Serve immediately.
