Charming Chanterelle Pasta

Oh, Chanterelle mushrooms!  The thought of chanterelle mushrooms evokes a smile from all serious food lovers.  They are actually quite abundant in forests, but are considered almost a rarity in American cuisine and their prices reflect that.  Their flavor is less pungent than other mushrooms and subtly warm and savory.  I can't exactly describe what makes chanterelles magical, but they hold their own with so little dressing up.  This is a simple dish, created to showcase the chanterelles' talent.

Sautee in a pan:

olive oil
pinch salt
pinch of pepper
minced clove of garlic

Toss over cooked pasta.
