Funghi Alla Griglia


12 mushroom caps (ovolo or porcini are best, but any freshly mushroom will do)
One tbs. parsley, chopped
Two cloves garlic
Three tbs. olive oil

How to make the Funghi Alla Griglia – Broiled Mushrooms:

Clean the mushrooms, removing the stems, and keeping them to use otherwise if you wish. Next, prepare a battuto with parsley and garlic and mix with 1 1/2 tbs—olive oil.

Make a cross-like incision inside the mushroom cap, place over the battuto, drizzle with the olive oil, and grill with the inside up. Grill for about 5 mins. till tender but still crisp. Remove from the gridiron, add the rest of the oil, salt, and pepper to taste. Serve very hot.

You can also broil the mushrooms and add the seasoning afterward.
