“Easy and elegant, a perfect romantic dinner for mushroom lovers! The wild mushrooms can be anything you like. The recipe recommends morels, chanterelles, shitake, oyster mushrooms, or a combination of them. We have only tried this with shitake so far with excellent results.”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Rinse the mushrooms and pat dry. Cut off and reserve stems. Cut the mushroom caps into thin strips. You should have about 4 cups of mushrooms.
  2. Cut the tomatoes into 1/2 inch cubes.
  3. Cut the prosciutto into very thin strips.
  4. Heat oil in skillet and add mushrooms, rosemary, pepper, and crushed red pepper and salt (optional). Cook, stirring for about 3 minutes, then add the garlic and prosciutto for another 1-2 minutes.
