Creamy Porcini Mushroom Pasta

Gluten free, low GI Christmas pudding cake
This recipe substitutes low GI apple, prune and apricot for the traditional high GI currants, raisins and sultanas, so it may help people who suffer from digestive problems such as irritable bowel syndrome, which is notoriously sensitive to sugar-laden dried fruit.
