Yield: 1 quart
|2 ounces||Dried porcini mushrooms|
|1 quart||Classic Fresh Tomato Sauce|
Cover the mushrooms with 2 cups warm water and let soak until softened, about 45 minutes. Drain the mushrooms, reserving ⅓ cup of the mushroom soaking liquid. Gently squeeze the mushrooms dry and chop them/ Strain the reserved soaking liquid through a coffee filter.
In a large saucepan, combine the mushrooms, reserved mushroom liquid, and the tomato sauce. Bring to a simmer and let cook until thick and not at all watery, 15-25 minutes.
