I’m sure everyone knows or has known a woman, mother, sister, cousin, friend or wife who can cook for 1 to 100 without batting an eyelash.
Well, the woman who gave me this recipe was one of them. She was the mother of one of my close friends in Italy. She could make anything and everything. I honestly believe the more people she had to cook for the happier she was.
Unfortunately she left this world too soon, but Maria will always be remembered with warmth in my eyes.
For me mushrooms were one of those take it or leave it vegetables, I probably left them more than I took them. But done this way, these marinated mushrooms are mouth-watering. Served with simple bruschetta , they become an amazing appetizer.
This recipe is really easy to make. The mushrooms just need to sit for a couple of hours and then you are basically ready to go. And if you ask me I could make a meal out of just appetizers! Add a glass of wine on the side and we’re all set. Buon Appetito!
