1/2 Photos of Funghi Ripieni (Stuffed Mushrooms)
bluemoon downunder's Note:
This is Bianca Stravato's low calorie, low-fat family recipe for what non-Italians call 'stuffed mushrooms'. Bianca grew up on a farm in Calabria, and came to Australia when her family migrated here in 1964. As she says "We cook the same here that we did in Italy. We keep our traditions. It was harder in the early days because there weren't many Italian delis or shops". How different things are now as I post this recipe for the 2005 Zaar World Tour: Italian recipes have now been thoroughly integrated into C21st Australian cuisine. I found this recipe in the Leggo's Golden Anniversary Cookbook.
