Polenta Tarts with Mushrooms and Nonno Nanni Favola di Latte

Ingredients for 4 persons

Ingredients for 4 tarts:
1 package Nonno Nanni Fior di Stracchino soft stracchino

for the polenta:
500 ml water
125 g fine cornmeal

for the mushrooms:
500 g button mushrooms
extra virgin olive oil
2 garlic cloves

Nonno Nanni Stracchino is a fresh, soft cheese with a unique flavour.


Clean the dirt off the mushrooms, rinse them quickly under running water and slice thinly. Put 3 tablespoons of extra virgin olive oil in large frying pan and add the whole garlic clove and the mushrooms. Cover and cook on medium for 5 minutes. Uncover and cook on low until the liquid evaporates. Remove the garlic, season with salt and add a handful of chopped parsley, and a drizzle of oil if needed.

Prepare the polenta according to package directions with 500 ml of salted water and 125 g of cornmeal,
as soon as it is cooked, transfer to a baking dish and let cool.

Now that everything is ready, we can make the tarts. Use a spoon to scoop the polenta and line a tart mould, wetting it with warm water if necessary. Fill the tart with a spoon of sautéed mushrooms and a dollop of Fior di Stracchino, top with diamond shapes. Warm it in the microwave for one minute... wait until you try this fabulous Favola tart!
