Cheesy Funghi-e-Pomodoro   4 comments

A beauty to savour and a delight to eat, this cheesy melt in the mouth dish looks and tastes no different than the regular gourmet italian fare!! I created this dish out of an intention to mingle mushrooms with aglio oilo and give it a texture and feel of the regular italian pizza which turned out pretty good, I believe 😉

2 Tbsp Olive Oil
2 Tbsp Cheddar Cheese (shredded)
1 tsp Dried Basil
1 tsp Dried Oregano & Parsley
½ tsp Paprika (Chilli Flakes)
½ tsp Pepper
Salt to taste
4-5 cloves Garlic (minced)
1 medium Onion (finely chopped)
1 medium Tomato (finely chopped)
½ medium Capsicum (finely chopped)
200-250 gms Mushrooms (coarsely sliced vertically along with stem)

-: Recipe :-

  1. Clean mushrooms thouroughly and soak when sliced in normal water for 5 minutes
  2. In a nonstick pan add olive oil. Saute garlic and dried basil. After a minute, add onion and saute till translucent.
  3. Add the mushrooms and stir on high heat till water separates out.
  4. Add salt and pepper. Turn heat on medium and stir regularly till water dries out.
  5. Add tomatoes and capsicum and saute the mixture on high heat for a couple of minutes.
  6. Add half of the cheddar, oregano, parsley and paprika and saute well for a couple of minutes more till the cheese melts and mixes well.
  7. Garnish with the remaining cheddar and Enjoy the Ultimate Experience 🙂

-: Tips :-

  • Substitute Salt with Rock Salt for a more zangy taste as well as a healthier alternative.
  • Cheddar cheese is recommended for the distinctive aroma and flavour it imparts to this dish as well as the ease with which it melts and mingles with rest of the ingrediants!
  • It can be best enjoyed with Tortillas, Rice, or even on top of some toasted Garlic Bread smeared with Extra Virgin Olive Oil. You can even have it as an appetizing side-dish.
