leftovers dinners – fresh mushrooms & macaroni soup

image

It’s all in the broth really. I saved some of the wonderful chicken broth my wife made and decided to use it to make a soup since it was raining!

Here’s my recipe:

Bring a liter of water to a boil. Add 100g of macaroni and some salt, and leave it cook for about 8 minutes. Meanwhile, slice an onion and a clove of garlic thinly and sweat them down with a splash of olive oil and a teaspoon of butter. Add the sliced mushrooms to the pan and stir. I added a pinch of ginger powder. Add the chicken broth, and let it simmer. Then add the whole thing to the boiling macaronis.
Let it all reduce just a little bit while all the flavors infuse.
I topped the plate with a pinch of tarragon

Here’s a pic I took in a haste 🙂

Porcini …

… enough said!

Well, when you see the picture of the “thing” that my friend Simone brought over yesterday afternoon, an exclamation is in order! He had a paper bag in his hand. He said it was a gift from his mother. Nothing I knew about mushroom prepared me for the sight.

Here it is in a pic taken earlier by Pia:

Porcini

Later that night we prepared the huge mushroom to Simone’s mother’s recipe (thanks!) with some garlic, olive oil, salt and a squeeze of lemon, oh and a steak! DELICIOUS!
