Taste of the Forest Pasta

The name of the pasta came to me from all the earthiness of the ingredients... wild mushrooms... thyme...pancetta...arugula.   When I was creating it....translate to "throwing it together", because it really only took as long as it did to boil the water and pull stuff out of the fridge...my head was filled with the notion and smells of a Fall day, hiking through the woods.    Which is weird since we just had a snow storm and the world here in Nova Scotia is white.   That's my daughter, Joanna with Boaz & Dov all happily enjoying perfect snowman making snow.
And it's weird since I can't even remember the last time I went hiking through the woods in the Fall, or that I would never forage for mushrooms or hunt and cure pork for my pancetta, or that the arugula comes from the hothouse of Riverview Herbs that I bought last weekend at the market..


Still, it's an easy dish to prepare and so flavorful, I just had to share it with Presto Pasta Nights, this week hosted by Emma of Souperior.  She's a first time PPN host and we're both very excited that she's decided to join in the fun and I hope you will too.  Send your entries to souperior (dot) blog (at) gmail (dot) com and cc ruth (at) 4everykitchen (dot) com by Thursday

Haha I think it's a fun name and draws your attention more than just gemelli w/pancetta and arugula. Sounds like a tasty dish!
