Cook time 35 Minutes
Servings 2


½ packet of pappardelle pasta
3 tbs. olive oil
1 clove of garlic, thinly sliced
3 sprigs marjoram

Balsamic, Mushroom and Duck Pasta


Bring a large pot of salted water to boil. In a large sauté pan, heat oil over a medium heat. Add the garlic and marjoram and cook for 1 minute or until it just starts to colour. Add the mushrooms and sauté for 5-6 minutes or until they start to colour.

At this stage add the pasta to the boiling water and cook as per packet instructions.

Now add the duck to the mushrooms, season with salt and pepper and add the wine. Bring to boil, then add the butter and the balsamic. Once the pasta is cooked, add directly to the sauce and agitate the pan to combine evenly.

Serve in two bowls with freshly grated Parmesan.
