This Week's Dinner:
Funghi ai Funghi
Hearty and Earthy, Like a Warm Hug
This dish is a delight for mushroom lovers (sorry, Ben.) I am one of those people and I like this dish so much that I can’t wait to share it with you. I’ll start by sautéing lots of sliced cremini and porcini mushrooms in butter with onions and fresh garlic until they are nicely browned. Then I’ll slowly simmer it down with dry white wine. Then I’ll finish it off with half and half to create a sauce that is creamy but not heavy. Then we’re going to double down on our theme with more funghi, which is a fun type of curly pasta that is said to resemble chanterelle mushrooms. We’ll. Finish it off by melting in some grated grana padano cheese for a richly satisfying meal.
Finish off your meal with a tasty slice of freshly baked focaccia..
