Meanwhile, pour the vegetable stock into a sauté-pan, add the saffron and bring to the boil. Gently add the capellini pasta, stirring regularly, until the stock is completely absorbed. Remove from the heat, add the butter and the grated Grana Padano Riserva. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Plate up the pasta
Reheat the sautéed mushrooms in a pan with the chopped chilli and chives and pour the mixture on top of the pasta and serve with chopped thyme leaves and a grating of Grana Padano Riserva.
