DIRECTIONS

  • Soak the dried mushrooms in the hot water for at least 30 minutes. Remove the mushrooms, rinse and chop fine.
  • Strain the soaking liquid through a coffee filter and reserve.
  • Melt 3 tbl butter in a skillet over medium-low heat. Add the onions and cook, stirring occasionally, until caramelized, about 10 minutes.
  • Add the rehydrated mushrooms and 1/2 cup of the soaking liquid and cook about 5 minutes.
  • Add the fresh mushrooms, rest of the butter and freshly ground pepper, plus more soaking liquid if it looks dry. Cover and cook about 25-30 minutes, stirring occasionally and adding more soaking liqiuid, if necessary. It should be moist, a little saucy, but not soupy.
  • Serve with hot pasta and Parmesan cheese.
  • Note: 1/4 oz of dried mushrooms is about 1/4 cup. The recipe calls for 30 minutes of soaking the dried mushrooms, but I feel you get a better result if you soak overnight.
