I can not tell a lie. I ate the entire bowl in five minutes flat. This is the kind of thing that happens when you make a pan of gloriously roasted mushrooms in the middle of the day when no one else is home.
Typically I would serve these as a side dish, or even an appetizer. Come to think of it, they would be fantastic in a salad or mixed into a pasta dish with some rotisserie chicken and Parmesan cheese. Now I’m hungry again.
When I first made these mushrooms, I mixed in the garlic at the beginning (as you see in the picture above). However, I found that the garlic was burned by the time the mushrooms had reached their tender, golden brown perfection. So, the next time I added the garlic partway through cooking. This still gives the garlic enough time to cook and lose its astringent raw flavor, but stops it from burning and turning bitter.
If you want to use fresh rosemary, by all means do so. Just make sure you increase the amount, as fresh herbs aren’t as strong as dried ones. In this case, I would use 1 tablespoon of fresh rosemary.
