    Then add your mushrooms and sauté with a pinch salt and pepper until starting to colour and soften

    Then add your vermouth and reduce by half, tossing the pan to coat the mushrooms. Add your double cream, pinch of salt and pepper and reduce until thickened. Then add half of your Parmesan cheese and stir until smooth.

    When your pasta is cooked, using tongs, drag your pasta into the mushroom sauce and toss or mix quickly to coat the pasta, add a little more pasta water if needed - your pasta sauce should be silky and coat the pasta.
