Pasta with Zucchini & Mushrooms

The theme for Monday posts in September is Mushrooms.

I did not willingly eat a mushroom until I was an adult.

The only mushrooms I had been exposed to were canned – either on pizza or in the ubiquitous ‘Cream of Mushroom Soup’

To me, they were just little bits of tasteless rubber. I refused to eat them.

Then I was introduced to fresh mushrooms.

I went from not eating them to foraging for them.

Okay – the foraging was limited to tagging along with someone who knew what they were looking for, but still….

This month we salute the mushroom – whether it’s white button, brown cremini, or wild mushrooms from the local markets.
