Makaruni Pasta with Morel Mushroom Sauce
Lidia Bastianich refers to the dough for this rustic hand-shaped pasta as "Rich Man's Golden Pasta." She tell us, "In Italy, it's a luxury to use precious egg yolks to moisten and enrich pasta dough. Makaruni, common in my birthplace of Istria, is a pasta my grandmother used to make when there was no time to roll, cut, and shape other pastas. Use this rich dough to prepare pappardelle when time allows."
