A Ragu is normally a meat based sauce served with pasta, here we make our own “meat” for this mushrooms ragu by finely chopping mushrooms and walnuts and adding some tamari/ soy sauce to give a lovely umami flavour. The walnuts and mushrooms add a lovely bite and texture as well as a lovely “meaty” feel to this traditional dish. If you can use wholemeal pasta such as spaghetti or penne or fusilli as it is higher in fibre which will function as a prebiotic feeding the bacteria in your microbiome and hence helping you to have a more resilient immune system. This dish is easy to make and make a great family or sharing meal. If you do want to make this dish gluten free just use brown rice pasta and ensure to use a wheat free tamari or soy sauce. Bread and pasta go so well together so we like to serve this with some sourdough from our bakery.
