This Tortelloni with grilled Italian Sausage and #organic sautéed shiitake mushrooms, baby spinach and Shredded Fontina Cheese is my #Farmtotable inspired dinner from a trip to the @eastchesterfarmersmarket.
Without rhyme or reason, I walked the farmers market to shop my favorite things. I challenged myself to come up with a dinner with those ingredients and whatever I had on hand at home. I randomly chose the the items that just appealed to my tastes. The combination of a well stocked pantry and the items I got at the Market I was able to pull together this dinner in minutes.
The beauty of the Farmer’s Market is that you can shop what’s in season and alter your favorite recipes as needed. I used the mushrooms that were available that day at the Farmer’s Market but feel free to use any mushrooms you might have on hand or that you prefer. The same goes for the cheeses and other produce. This dish is very versatile and the ingredients can be varied from month to month, etc…
