Stir in the Cognac and simmer 5 minutes.

Add the porcini. Season to taste with salt and pepper. Simmer until thick and richly perfumed with the porcini, about 20 minutes.

Cook the pasta in boiling salted water until tender but still firm. Drain and toss with the porcini cream sauce immediately. Add the parsley and Parmesan and toss to combine. Serve immediately.
