This recipe was born by the imagination of Mimi.

It can be said it is one typical Italian food because of some ingredients.

Sometimes having even very few products in the fridge you can always imagine and prepare one original dish.

So, it was born this Salt Torta of Mushrooms and Truffles that was very delicious and light!



The recipe is based on mushrooms and truffles (tartufo). This is one very simple, light and cheaper recipe. But for sure it is very delicious because the most simple things are always the best!

For the recipe it is used Robiola Truffle (Robiola di Tartufo in Italian) that is one kind of Italian light cheese that is good to have also over the slice of bread. Robiola di Tartufo is similar like Philadelphia cheese in Italy.

Place the puff pastry into a suitable round baking dish for oven (put the rise paper on the bottom!). Pierce the bottom with a fork.
