Boscaiola means “woodsman style” and this dish will evoke sensations of strolling along a densely wooded trail in autumn. Fresh porcini mushrooms would be ideal for this sauce and if you happen to find some by all means use them in this recipe and simply disregard steps 1 and 3. In the absence of fresh porcini the method of using dried porcini illustrated here endows cultivated mushrooms with the flavor of wild mushrooms.
