Go authentic Italian with Mario Batali's spicy mushroom dish.



Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • In a heavy 4-quart saucepan, combine the mushrooms, red onion, red-pepper flakes, scallions, garlic, wine, tomatoes, and tomato sauce; bring to a boil. Lower the heat, and simmer, partially covered, for 20 minutes. The mixture should be thick, like a ragu. Season to taste with salt and pepper, and transfer to a large, shallow serving bowl.

  • Toast the bread, and smear with pesto. Stand the crostini upright at varying angles in the mushroom hodgepodge, and serve immediately.

A tbs of crushed red pepper is WAY too much and I like things spicy! I added a whole other cup of tomato sauce and spice is still all I can taste. Even getting past that don't much taste the garlic, can only taste the wine the next day. Disappointing!
