Portobello mushrooms with pasta?

  • m
  • 5

I just bought six portobellos and have had to put my bbq away because of weather - how can I best cook them on the stovetop? I don't have access to a lot of ingredients but have the staples - olive oil, balsamic, chick broth. I wonder if I could make a pasta sauce with the mushrooms, chick broth, wine, what else? And I'm not sure how long to cook them on the stovetop.Any suggestions much appreciated.

  1. You could broil them in the oven just as you would grill them or if you have a grill pan do them in it.

      I baste them with olive oil, balsamic, S&P, and garlic and then broil them. From there I throw some shallots in a pan to sautee for a couple of minutes, add mushrooms for a couple minutes then add white wine and herbs - e.g parsley, sage and/or thyme. More From there, I toss the pasta into the pan (and more S&P) to soak up all the goodness.

      2. I would add some garlic, shallot and maybe some onion or chives. Some cream for a cream sauce or crushed tomatoes for a red sauce.
        When I don't have time, I just cut up the mushrooms and add them to a jar of my favorite pasta sauce.

        1. You can use them for a filling for ravioli. Dice them up and sautee them with some onion, garlic, thyme, italian seasoning, then add some parmesan cheese and breadcrumbs, and a little beaten egg as a binder. Let the filling cool, then use it to fill your own home made pasta sheets, or just use wonton wrappers. Easy and tasty.
