You Will Need

  • Olive Oil
  • Salt

  • 1 Medium Pot

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil and place a colander in the sink. Thoroughly rinse produce and pat dry. Zest lime, mince zest, and halve lime. Place shiitake mushrooms in a heatproof container and add enough of the boiling water to submerge mushrooms. Cover with plastic wrap. Remaining water on stove will be used for cooking pasta.

    Prepare the Red Curry Sauce

    In the pot in which pasta was cooked, add coconut milk, ginger, and red curry paste. Whisk to combine and bring to a simmer. Remove shiitake mushrooms from liquid and slice into thin strips (julienne). Add to pot with sauce, along with 2 Tbsp. of rehydrating liquid and juice from half of lime. Dissolve cornstarch in 2 tsp. of cold water and add to sauce. When sauce has thickened, add pasta back to pot and stir to combine. Season to taste salt and pepper.
