6 tablespoons dried mushrooms (cêpes, porcini)
1/3 cup hot water
1 tablespoon plus 1/2 teaspoon salt
2 gallons water
2 tablespoons butter
3 tablespoons flour
1/8 teaspoon white pepper
1 cup heavy cream
1 cup milk
2 tablespoons lemon juice
1/2 cup grated mozzarella

1/4 cup olive oil
1/2 pound fresh mushrooms, sliced
3/4 cup prosciutto, finely chopped
4 medium tomatoes (about 2 pounds)

18 ounces fettuccine

Soak the dried mushrooms in the hot water in a small bowl. Add 1 table-spoon salt to 2 gallons water on a large pot and put over high heat to boil.

Stir in the sliced mushrooms and prosciutto. Sauté briefly and remove from heat. Lift the dried mushrooms out of the bowl with a slotted spoon and stir into mushroom mixture. Decant and add all but the last tablespoon of the soaking liquid. Add the tomatoes and stir the mixture into the mozzarella sauce.
Stir the fettuccine into the boiling water and continue stirring for the first 2 minutes of cooking. Cook according to package directions. Drain the pasta and stir into the skillet with the sauce. Cover and let stand 1 minute. Serve immediately, Serves 6.
