Whenever an idea for a recipe comes to me, I make an entry about it in a notebook. This is one I discovered while leafing through my notes. Unfortunately, I had neglected to include how the idea came to me. It was probably inspired by a soup I ate in Italy, but I don’t remember where. Anyway, it turned out so well that it instantly became a favorite with our family. Before I tried this, it had not occurred to me how well porcini and sausage go together!
