 Ingredients List

  • 1 oz Dried Porcini or Polish
  • -mushrooms
  • 2 c Warm water
  • 1 ts Olive oil
  • 4 oz Mixed wild & domestic

If you haven't soaked the Porcini in advance (see note below) set combine
Porcini and water in a saucepan and bring to a simmer; let soak for 20
minutes or until tender. Drain soaked Porcini, rinse them to remove grit;
and chop them. Strain the soaking liquid through non-bleached paper towel
or cotton cheesecloth-lined sieve; reserve for later.

Heat the olive oil in a saucepan. When hot add chopped soaked Porcini and
saute for a few seconds. Add the fresh mushrooms, cover and cook over very
low heat until mushrooms are tender (if they begin to stick to the bottom
of the pan, add a few spoonfuls of mushroom soaking liquid). Add reserved
Porcini liquid and broth and bring to a simmer; add tortellini and cook,
uncovered for 5 minutes or until tender. Season to taste with salt and
pepper and portion out; garnish with chives.

NOTE - to soak mushrooms in advance; cover 2 ounces of dried mushrooms with
1 quart of water; set in refrigerator overnight or for longer; remove
soaked mushrooms and soaking liquid as needed.
