Porcini are the most delicious mushrooms and with the addition of pancetta they taste amazing. They can be hard to get hold of so you could use portobello mushrooms instead but they won't be as tasty.
Dried porcini mushrooms are easy to get hold of and have loads of flavour. The addition of mint works really well with the other ingredients but be careful, as too much mint can overpower the other ingredients. Conchighlie (pasta shells) work well in this recipe as the sauce tends to get stuck in the inside of the shells. Have a great weekend!
