Notes

This recipe will give you a little too much sauce so save the extra and use it later with steamed green beans as a veg course. It is fantastic in an omelet with a little grated Parmesan.
Feel free to mix the mushrooms if you like 1/2 to 2/3 plain white (champignon) mushrooms with another more strongly flavored mushroom such as portabella or shitake.You can of course substitute basil for the parsley if you have fresh in the house.
You only need to cook this sauce for 20 minutes as the mushrooms were really cooked before you added the tomatoes. So just long enough to cook the tomatoes, not more than 20 minutes after they come up to a simmer.

Canapes

I don't have many canapes here. The ones I share are super quick, very tasty and most of all tasty. Your guests will appreciate the effort.

A Quick Note

I wanted to take a minute to say that I do try and weigh as many of the ingredients as I can. I think it helps make recipe results more consistent. Of course professional bakers even measure liquids by weight. I don't mind pulling out my little digital scale when I need to.
