Funghi Alla Griglia


12 mushroom caps (ovoli or porcini are best, but any type of freshy mushroom will do)
1 tbs. parsley, chopped
2 cloves garlic
3 tbs. olive oil

How to make the Broiled Mushrooms:

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

Make a cross-like incision in the inside of 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 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.
