Serve these mushrooms as an hors d'oeuvre or as an accompaniment to a beef or veal roast.

  1. 24 medium porcini or cremini mushrooms
  2. 3 medium garlic cloves, thinly sliced
  3. 3 ounces thinly sliced pancetta, torn into thin strips
  4. 1 tablespoon extra-virgin olive oil
  1. Preheat the oven to 450°. Make a cut in the center of each mushroom stem down to the cap. Insert a garlic slice in each stem, wrap a pancetta strip around it and secure with a toothpick. Spread the mushrooms on 2 large baking sheets, brush with the olive oil and bake for about 14 minutes, or until browned and crisp. Remove the toothpicks, transfer to a platter and serve.
