Homemade Porcini Almond Fresh Pasta for Sunday Supper

Homemade Porcini Almond Fresh Pasta for Sunday Supper


I’m having writer’s block. When I was planning to write this post I had a fun story to go along with it, but now that I’ve sat down to write it, I can’t remember what the story was. Must not have been that awesome if it slipped my mind, huh? I can tell you that it probably wasn’t about life around here lately because that’s been all scrambling to keep the house in order and the kids alive while the hubs was out of town all while still trying to get at least a smidge of work done. Major props to all the single parents out there. This is no joke.

But anyway…pasta. Porcini Almond Fresh Pasta.

On our last trip down to Anaheim, we had a chance to stroll around the downtown area. I loved it. All the awesome shops with retro styling – coffee saloon (with cold brew on tap!), a cute cheese shop, lots of restaurants. It was definitely my kind of place. Maybe I’ll do a post on that area alone, but all that intro was to say that in one of those shops I came across a box of dried brown pasta…porcini pasta.

I thought about buying it for about ten seconds before I decided that I could just make it myself. Fresh pasta is one of my favorite things, and ya’ll know how much I love mushrooms (see this and this). Putting them together sounded like pure genius. And so I went there.

My homemade Almond Flour Pasta is one of my most popular recipes both here on the blog and in my own kitchen, so I decided to apply this delicious twist to that recipe. Super easy, and so savory on its own I didn’t need anything more than brown butter and a little parmesan and dinner was served. You can, of course, just adapt it to your own favorite pasta recipe if you don’t want to go the almond route.

I know porcini mushroom powder isn’t exactly a common ingredient (it’s sold on Amazon if you can’t find any local – that’s an affiliate link). If you can get your hands on dried porcinis (they’re sold at the Costcos around me, so I’m assuming they’re more readily available), grind some up in a spice grinder to make the powder. No dried porcinis? Try dried shiitakes. They’re super common at Asian markets, very flavorful and quite a bit cheaper.

Homemade Porcini Almond Fresh Pasta for Sunday Supper

Author: Joy @ The Joyful Foodie

Recipe type: gluten free, grain free

Serves: 4 servings


  • 1½ cups almond flour
  • 1½ cups tapioca flour
  • 2 Tbs xanthan gum
  • 2 Tbs porcini mushroom powder*
  • 3 large eggs
  • 1 tsp salt


  1. Sift together the almond flour, tapioca flour and xanthan gum. The texture of the almond flour will affect the final texture of the pasta so you want it fine and well sifted.
  2. Take 2 cups of the flour mixture and make a mound on your working surface. Create a deep well in the mound.
  3. Add the mushroom powder, salt and eggs.
  4. Use a fork or your finger to gently mix the eggs, slowly incorporating flour from the bottom and edges of the well until it is all combined or the dough can be kneaded by hand.
  5. Knead dough until it is smooth and pliable. The dough should be pliable but not too sticky. If dough is sticky, add flour (from the remaining flour mixture) a little at a time, kneading until smooth.
  6. Roll the dough into a ball, wrap with plastic wrap and allow to rest for at least 30 minutes.
  7. Divide the dough into four equal pieces and use your hands to shape each piece into a rectangle about a quarter of an inch thick.
  8. Send the first piece through the pasta roller at setting 1.
  9. Fold the piece in half and send through again. Repeat one or two more times until the dough feeds through smoothly, dusting with tapioca starch to keep it from sticking.
  10. Change to setting 2 and feed the dough through. Repeat until you get to your desired thinness As you go, dust the pasta sheets with a bit of tapioca starch to keep the sheets from sticking.
  11. Repeat for each of the remaining three pieces of dough.
  12. Switch to a pasta cutter and feed each piece through or slice each sheet into pasta strands with a knife.
  13. Bring a large pot of salted water to a rolling boil.
  14. Drop in pasta strands and cook for 60 seconds while stirring.
  15. Remove pasta from water and toss with olive oil or butter.
Get fancy with porcini mushroom fresh pasta made with almond flour.
