This dish is perfect for a special brunch or just to make a Melave Malka that much more special! The sweetness of the chestnuts balances the earthiness of the mushrooms. Definitely a marriage of flavors.

    question

    Would you think that I'd be able to make the sauce in advance. Cook up the sauce, refrigerate, and heat it up later and add to fresh pasta?

    Hi Dini! So excited you are asking about my recipe. You can totally make the sauce in advance, although maybe add some fresh chesnuts for garnish. You may also need to add some soup stock or water to the sauce if it congeals. Warm it up slowly.
