Funghi Trifolati Recipe


Truffle-Style Mushroom Recipe


Funghi Trifolati is an easy and versatile sauteed Italian mushroom dish.  This is my take on the classic Italian mushroom dish, a simple, but truly delicious every day Italian side dish.  In Italy, porcini wild mushrooms are used in this recipe.

I adapted this mushroom recipe from an old Italian recipe.  In Italy, porcini wild mushrooms are used in this recipe.  I have used portabello mushrooms instead as they are easy to find in the market and easy to work with.  These mushrooms would be excellent served with your favorite steak.

Recipe Notes

* A portobello mushroom is a very large cremini, and a cremini is a brown or cream-colored version of the white button mushroom.  The flavor of the portobelo is the same as that of the common supermarket mushroom, except it is more distinct because it is older and more developed.
