Porcini Con Patate E Salciccia

When they were young kids my parents got a war on their shoulder, our town, Genoa, was bombed many times in the fourthies and for four years there wasn’t water and food enough: everything was very difficult to find. My parents taught me to never throw away food if it is still good, instead do a remake of some kind, also remembering that every time we eat we already caused pain and death;  our ailments are due to animals and plants paying with their life to sustain us: we must respect their life consuming all the edible parts and wasting nothing.

It happens that we had a barbecue party in the evening, and some sausage remained for the day after. My son got few “porcini” mushrooms in the woods so we prepared a wonderful complementary dish just adding some potatoes.  You will prepare this dish as main course or as complement for beef or poultry.

 

 Ingredients: (quantities are not important: you use what you have)

mushrooms

sausage

potatoes

marine salt

extra virgin olive oil – butter
