I love mushrooms and I don’t think that I’ve tried one I have not liked yet!  I don’t go out and hunt for them here in the Mitten because I would be the person who would find the wrong one and poison my meal – uggg.  So I leave the hunting to the market where I purchase my groceries or to the wonderful young man who I ment who recently started growing gourmet mushrooms.

I found this recipe for Mushroom Ragu and with a few tweaks it’s taste wonderful and can be placed on anything from baked potatoes to fresh pasta or just eaten right from the pan 😉   Enjoy!!!!    For comments/questions email ramona@lowfatdivablog.com
