The seasoning with butter and sage is a great classic, but you can choose other sauces, white or red, based on vegetables or meat. In this case, we suggest you aim for simplicity, leaving the absolute protagonists to be the flavors of the undergrowth.

In case the mushrooms are no longer in season, you can also try other kind of fillings like pumpkin, mustard and amaretti.
