Before you start
Keep the serving dishes in the oven at the lowest setting so they are warm when you serve.
Put a colander in the sink to drain the cooked pasta so that it will be ready when needed.
- In a small bowl, soak the porcini mushrooms in ½ cup of warm water until softened, about 20 min.
- While the porcini are softening, prepare the vegetables: Finely chop the onion and thinly slice the fresh white mushrooms. Cook the small peas, still frozen, by blanching them about 3 min in a small pot of boiling salted water. Drain them and set aside.
- Using a microwave, heat the duck legs confit about 1 ½ min at high power. Remove and discard the skin and bones, then set the meat aside.
- To save time, the rest of the sauce preparation and pasta cooking can be done at the same time. Cook the pasta.
- Heat the oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the onion then sauté until it becomes translucent, about 3 min. Add the fresh sliced white mushrooms and sauté, with stirring, until the mushrooms are browned and any liquid they give off has evaporated, about 3 min.
- Lift the porcini mushrooms out of the soaking liquid, then add them to the skillet. Sauté 1 min. Pour the soaking liquid through a sieve (lined with a dampened paper towel to eliminate any grit) then add it to the skillet. Stir in the duck meat, cooked peas, and demi-glace. Season with a little salt and pepper. Heat gently through.
- Drain the pasta, then pour it into the pan. Mix well, sprinkle with the grated parmesan, then serve.
