Here's how to make Cesco Osteria's Rigatoni with Porcini Mushrooms and Pistachio Pesto. This recipe was featured on News4 Midday on Wednesday, and immediately became a sought-after dish.

Ingredients

1 Lb Rigatoni pasta
3 Porcini mushrooms sliced (frozen) - approx. 1 cup sliced

1 tbs chopped fresh basil
4 leaves chopped sage
1/2 cup vegetarian stock
1/4 cup dry white wine
2 tbs heavy cream
2 tbs olive oil
salt and pepper
parmesan cheese

Steps

Step 1: Heat half of the olive oil and add half the garlic, half the parsley and basil and all the sliced porcini. Cook for a 4 minutes. Add half the wine and cook until evaporated and set aside off stove.

Step 2: Heat the remaining olive oil, garlic, parsley and basil with the shallots, sage and pistachios for 2-3 minutes. Add the remainder of wine and let evaporate. Then add stock and heavy cream, salt and pepper. Let reduce on low heat for 8-10 minutes and then blend until smooth.

Step 4: Combine blended sauce with reserved porcini mushrooms and cook for a few more minutes. Add a little stock if too dry and taste for salt and pepper. Sauce can be made in advance and keep in fridge up to four days.

Step 5: Combine pasta with sauce in the fry pan and add grated parmesan cheese. Add reserved pasta water if the sauce gets too thick.
