I mentioned here that I won a giveaway from a food blog, and I received a box of goodies, including dried mushrooms and chilis and pepper and salts. I wanted to report on a few of the things that I have made with them. First, I made a mushroom mac and cheese, and oh was it good. I used dried Chanterelle mushrooms, dried Shiitake mushrooms and dried Maiitake
I used a recipe that I found on MarxFood.com for Penne and Cheese with Mushrooms.
I poured hot water over the mushrooms and let them come back to life.
Then I mixed in all the cheesy goodness and the pasta. It was sooooo good! Good cheese, good pasta and good mushrooms can't be bad.
