2-serving instructions (4-serving modifications in red)

Wash produce before use


Cook the casareccia

Bring a medium sauce pot of generously salted water to a boil. Add the casareccia and cook until just tender, 4 to 6 minutes. Drain and set aside.

While the water is heating and the casareccia is cooking, prepare the vegetables.


Prep and cook the vegetables

  • Trim the stem ends from the maitake mushrooms; cut the mushrooms into ½-inch pieces.
  • Cut the cremini mushrooms into ½-inch pieces.

In a large frying pan over medium-high heat, warm 1 tablespoon oil until hot but not smoking. Add the butternut squash, cover, and cook, stirring occasionally, until starting to soften, about 4 minutes. Stir in the maitake and cremini mushrooms and 1 to 2 tablespoons oil; cover and cook until the squash is tender and the mushrooms are lightly browned, 4 to 5 minutes. 

While the vegetables are cooking, prepare the remaining ingredients.



Prep the remaining ingredients

  • Strip the thyme leaves from the stems.
  • In a small bowl or cup, mix the vegetable broth concentrate with ⅓ cup [⅔ cup] warm water and stir to combine.


Finish the casareccia

Stir the shallot-garlic confit into the vegetables and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add the black truffle butter and thyme and cook, stirring occasionally, until the butter is melted and the thyme is fragrant, about 1 minute. Add the vegetable broth and bring to a boil, then reduce to a vigorous simmer. Stir in the casareccia and cook until heated through, 1 to 2 minutes. Remove from the heat and stir in the Italian cheese blend. Season to taste with salt and pepper.


Transfer the casareccia to individual bowls and serve.
