Ingredients
  1. 3 tablespoons extra-virgin olive oil, divided
  2. 3 tablespoons chilled butter, divided
  3. 6 thin slices aged Prosciutto de Parma, torn into large pieces
  4. 1 cup pecans, coarsely chopped
  5. 12 whole fresh sage leaves
  6. 2 pounds assorted fresh wild mushrooms (Portabella, Porcini, Oyster, Beech, Cremini, and Shiitake), sliced
  7. 2 cloves fresh garlic, minced
  8. 2 large shallots, minced
  9. 1 cup fresh baby spinach leaves
  10. 2 cups low-sodium chicken broth
  11. 1 teaspoon black truffle oil
  12. Sea salt and garlic pepper, to taste
  13. 3/4 cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
Instructions
  1. Heat a tablespoon of olive oil in your KitchenAid® Skillet over medium-high heat, and cook the prosciutto in batches for a few minutes until crispy and browned. Drain on paper towels and set aside.
  2. Add the pecans to the Skillet and toast for a few minutes until lightly browned with a nutty aroma (being careful not to burn them); remove nuts from Skillet and set aside.
  3. Add a tablespoon of butter to the Skillet and sauté the sage leaves until crisp, about 1 minute per side. Transfer to paper towels.
  4. Heat remaining 2 tablespoons of olive oil and 2 tablespoons of butter in the same Skillet over medium-high heat. Add the mushrooms, shallots, garlic and sauté until mushrooms are brown and liquid evaporated, about 10 minutes. Add the spinach and sauté for another 2 minutes until wilted and transfer mixture to a mixing bowl.
  5. Pour in the chicken stock to the Skillet and bring the liquid to a boil. Scrape up the browned bits and cook until liquid is reduced by half, about 7 minutes. Remove from the heat and add truffle oil, mushroom mixture, cooked prosciutto, pecans and sage. Mix together well, season with sea salt and garlic pepper to taste.
  6. Serve the cooked Bucatini pasta tossed with the sauce and garnish with shaved parmigiano-reggiano cheese.
  7. Sauce can be made up to 2 hours ahead; let stand at room temperature.
