to serve

1. Mix the two flours to­gether on a clean work sur­face. 2. Whisk the eggs in a small bowl. 3. Make a well in the flour and pour in the egg. Us­ing the tips of your fingers or a fork, gen­tly bring the edges of the flour into the egg mix, slowly in­cor­po­rat­ing it all to­gether un­til you have a ball of dough. Knead for a few min­utes un­til smooth and elas­tic. Let stand, cov­ered with a damp tea towel, for about 1 hour.

4. Prefer­ably us­ing a pasta ma­chine, roll out the dough into sheets of thin pasta ac­cord­ing to the man­u­fac­turer’s in­struc­tions, then cut into strips about 20cm long and 2cm wide.

5. Cook the pasta in boil­ing, salted wa­ter for 2 min­utes. Driz­zle with olive oil to pre­vent it from stick­ing to­gether. Set aside. 6. In a saucepan, sauté the gar­lic and chilli in the olive oil, add the mush­rooms and con­tinue cook­ing on a medium heat for about 5 min­utes un­til the mush­rooms are cooked. Add a spoon­ful of chopped pars­ley and sea­son with salt. Add the cooked pasta and Gruyère, toss the pan and heat through be­fore serv­ing im­me­di­ately with ex­tra pars­ley and grated Gruyère.
