Cook Healthy and QuickThis sauce from the Piedmont region of Italy, where wild mushrooms, including truffles, grow in abundance. Mushrooms have good amounts of trace minerals.

  • Yield: 4 Servings
  • Preparation Time: 15 Minutes
  • Cooking Time: 10 Minutes


  • 4 tbsp butter
  • 14 oz (400 g) chicken livers, trimmed
  • 2 shallots, finely chopped
  • 1 oz (30 g) dried porcini mushrooms, soaked in water for 30 minutes and the water reserved
  • 1 tsp tomato paste
  • 4 tbsp Marsala
How to Make It
  1. Heat the butter in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the livers and cook for about 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon, place on a plate lined with paper towels, and set aside.
  2. Add the shallots to the pan and cook until soft. Then add the mushrooms and tomato paste and stir to combine. Stir in the Marsala and shake the pan lightly to mix through.
  3. Return the livers to the pan and mix well to coat with the sauce. Taste and adjust seasoning, if needed, and add a little of the reserved soaking water if the sauce seems too thick. Serve hot with tagliatelle mixed with a little truffle oil.
