Pasta with Mushroom-Sage Olive Oil and Pecorino


  • 12 oz. dry pasta of choice, cooked al dente in lightly salted water
  • Kosher salt, and fresh ground pepper to taste.
  • 1/3 cup grated Pecorino Romano
  • 1 tablespoon fresh lemon juice
  • 2 oz. pancetta, thinly sliced (optional)
  • 6 fresh sage leaves, cut in thin strips
  • 4 tablespoons Wild Mushroom & Sage Infused Olive Oil


  1. While your pasta cooks, add the olive oil to a large saute pan over medium heat.
  2. Add sage leave strips and pancetta (if using).
  3. Fry for a couple of minutes until the sage and pancetta strips are crispy but not burnt.
  4. Add the lemon juice and whisk. Set aside.
  5. Drain the pasta but leave a fair amount of cooking water in the pasta.
  6. Add the wet pasta to the saute pan and return to heat tossing to coat and thicken the sauce.
  7. Test for seasoning, adding fresh ground pepper and additional salt if desired, and serve immediately.
