Ingredients

  • 1/3 cup extra-virgin olive oil
  • 2 medium red onions, thinly sliced
  • 4 cloves garlic, thinly sliced
  • 4 jalapeno peppers, halved seeded and thinly sliced
  • 4 pounds medium-sized assorted mushrooms (cremini, porcini, portobello, shiitake, chanterelle), cleaned and cut into 1-inch pieces
  • 1 cup basic tomato sauce, recipe follows
  • 6 scallions, thinly sliced
  • Peasant or rustic bread, sliced, grilled
Basic Tomato Sauce:
  • 1/4 cup extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 Spanish onion, chopped in 1/4-inch dice
  • 4 garlic cloves, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 3 tablespoons chopped fresh thyme leaves, or 1 tablespoon dried
  • 1/2 medium carrot, finely shredded
  • 2 (28-ounce) cans peeled whole tomatoes, crushed by hand and juices reserved
  • Salt

Directions

In a 12 to 14-inch skillet, heat the olive oil over high heat until smoking. Add the onions, garlic, and jalapenos and cook until wilted and starting to brown, about 4 to 5 minutes. Add the mushrooms and cook over high heat for 10 minutes, until well-browned. Add the tomato sauce and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 5 minutes more, add the scallions, and then serve immediately with grilled peasant bread.

Basic Tomato Sauce:

In a 3-quart saucepan, heat the olive oil over medium heat. Add the onion and garlic, cook until soft, and light golden brown, about 8 to 10 minutes. Add the thyme and carrot, and cook 5 minutes more, until the carrot is quite soft. Add the tomatoes and juice and bring to a boil, stirring often. Lower the heat and simmer for 30 minutes until as thick as hot cereal. Season with salt and serve. This sauce holds 1 week in the refrigerator or up to 6 months in the freezer.
