With the official start of the holiday season right around the corner, we’re already planning the menu for our upcoming family parties!
Of course, everyone’s favorite classic dishes are on the list for Thanksgiving and Christmas – but we also like to add some new and special recipes to the menu during the holidays. That’s where these amazing Tuscan Stuffed Mushrooms come into the picture!
These delicious, savory stuffed mushrooms – made with Alessi Sun Dried Tomato Pesto and Alessi Pine Nuts – are going to be the talk of your next holiday party.
Plump cremini mushrooms are stuffed with breadcrumbs, Tuscan kale, fennel, Parmesan and mascarpone cheeses, and Alessi Sun Dried Tomato Pesto and Alessi Pine Nuts add amazing flavor to the mix.
The Alessi family has been selling delicious Italian foods and ingredients since the early 1900’s. They believe that the quality and value of the food you eat enriches your life – and they pride themselves on making products that captures the true flavors of Italian cuisine.
The Alessi Sun Dried Tomato Pesto we used in our Tuscan Stuffed Mushrooms recipe is an old Alessi family recipe. It is made with only the finest ingredients including sun dried tomatoes, extra virgin olive oil, pine nuts, Romano cheese, basil and garlic. While many competitive brands replace the extra virgin olive oil and pine nuts with less expensive oils and nuts, Alessi Sun Dried Tomato Pesto is authentically Italian and it shows in the delicious flavor.
Alessi Pine Nuts are harvested from the cones of certain Stone Pine trees. Those pine trees only begin to produce usable cones once they reach fifteen years of age. Each cone, which is manually scaled, contains approximately 100 seeds.
After our Tuscan Stuffed Mushrooms are baked in the oven, we added a little more delicious Alessi flavor – with dollop of Sun Dried Tomato Pesto and mascarpone cheese and a sprinkle of Pine Nuts on top.
Our Tuscan Stuffed Mushrooms will be a delicious addition to any holiday meal or a delicious appetizer to serve at a holiday cocktail party.
