I think 2017 might be the year that I conquer my fear of the mushroom. If I’m ever invited out to dinner at someone’s house and they ask if there is anything I don’t eat, mushrooms are top of the list. Followed by aubergines and shellfish. It’s a texture thing… But actually, I don’t even like LOOKING at mushrooms. The frondy ones anyhow.
But maybe the dried wild mushroom is the way to go. I certainly enjoyed them in the Lieutenant Columbo Scallopini and I used them for Robert’s stuffed courgettes too and they were good.
A few years ago there is no way I would have eaten this, but eat it I did, and enjoyed it I did.
I’m sounding a bit like Yoda from Star Wars there…
It’s good to have another veggie recipe for the Columbo cookbook. There aren’t many to be had from the Columbo co-stars. But Robert is providing two, this one and his Fettucini Alfredo.
