North Croatian Mushrooms and Pasta Casserole

North Croatian Mushrooms and Pasta Casserole created by nitko

This is one of the traditional meals of poor people from North Croatia. Croatian forests are full with various kinds of mushrooms. One of the famous is “vrganj” which can grow up to 1 kg and more. Smaller are much better though. Usually we make our own pasta, flat and without ornaments, but macaroni or farfalle will do.
