Linguine with a Chestnut, Oyster and Porcini Mushroom Ragu

This comforting combination of roast mushrooms, silky linguine and plenty of Parmesan is the kind of dish you look forward to after a long week at the office. This will work with most combinations of mushrooms, the secret here is to get some really nice colour on them, beautiful brown mushrooms mean wonderfully meaty flavours. The addition of dried porcini to make a stock really helps to amplify the flavour.
