Recipe Notes
  1. To fry the mushrooms you can use a thin slurry of cornflour in place of the egg.
  2. After I finished frying the mushrooms I had about 2-3 tablespoons of egg and ½ cup of bread crumbs. I thought the salad was a bit dry. In the non-stick pan, I added 2 cups of the reserved water when it came to a boil added the egg and the bread crumbs. I let it thicken then added to the pasta salad.
