The Mondavis chose this pasta for their meal in Italy because it features wild mushrooms, a staple in their California kitchen. Porcini and chanterelles are especially good varieties to use because they stay firm when tossed with the pasta; don't include oyster mushrooms, which tend to get too flabby during cooking.
