Fungi, feta and spinach: a perfect marriage!. Be sure to make this paste and will be remembered for a long time! The feta cheese is ideal for this recipe, but you like please give a chance. Its flavor although strong adds to the intensity of the dish. Use white or cremini mushrooms; If the budget tightens use canned but will not be equal. I used frozen spinach, I found fresh, but it is great alike. This recipe does parmigiano reggiano because I think that feta is enough.
