Editorial Reviews

[Stuffed Mushrooms Recipe from The Italian Cooking Course] This unconventional take on everyone's favorite fun guy may not be quite what you're expecting. They're ginormous stuffed fungi, not the little pop-in-your-mouth appetizers that are everybody's favorite party favor. This is a knife-and-fork, first-course rendition that's even better. Trust us. But if you've got your hearts-and memories-set on those wee cherubic stuffed mushrooms, go ahead and sub button or cremini mushrooms, just for old time's sake. There are directions for those old-time stuffed mushrooms variation just beneath the recipe.
