Torta Salata ai Funghi {Savory Mushroom Pie}

If you like mushrooms, and I’m going to choose to believe that everyone does ; ) Yes, I like rainbows and glitter too LOL .You’re going to love this SAVORY, buttery, flaky, creamy, cheesy, filled to the mushroom max Torta Salata ai Funghi {Savory Mushroom Pie} That’s a mouthful ; )  

If you’ve never had a mushroom pie, or mushroom pot pie depending on where you’re from, you’re in for a treat. It comes together in a snap and you could even make it ahead of time and just pop it into the oven when you’re ready to eat. It’s a little chopping, a little sauteing and voila…{well pretty much} And then, just cook until golden brown and bubbly. Easy peasy.

I’m a sucker for anything with mushrooms, and then when there’s a bechamel sauce added…HELLO sign me up! It’s the perfect dish for cooler weather and great for nights when you’re craving some serious comfort food!

    Holy cow this looks fantastic. Your crust is so flaky, it almost looks like it would crumble with a soft breath. And yes, bechemel sauce makes everything better.

    Don’t be so sure about mushroom lovers. Unfortunately, I’m the only one in my family. I’m trying to bring the others around; trying really, really hard!

    PIE! Oops – I didn’t mean to shriek. But, you know – PIE! This looks fabulous. 🙂
