My husband and I were reminiscing about our favorite date night spots in Lexington and he brought up Ed and Fred’s Desert Moon. It was a great place for an evening out and the food was terrific. I loved the Brie and Mushroom Tortellini! It closed years ago, but I still remember the house salads and the empanadas too! Yummy! I looked for the recipe online and found a version published in Ace Magazine! I made a few adjustments, but the taste is just the same! I paired it with a simple side salad and voila! It made a Tuesday night special and my husband thought it was very romantic! You can find more date night recipes here!
Serving Size: 6
4 ounces brie
4 cloves garlic chopped
2 tablespoons olive oil
1 cup sliced green onions
2 cups sliced mushrooms
1 teaspoon kosher salt
1 teaspoon fresh cracked black pepper
1 teaspoon oregano
⅓ cup flour
2 ounces butter
1-quart vegetable stock
¼ cup of soy sauce
Cut the brie into small cubes and place it in a medium glass bowl.
Cook the mushrooms and garlic in olive oil until they are tender.
Add half of the green onions and spices, and simmer together.
Add the mushroom mix to the bowl of brie and mix it until the cheese has melted.
In a separate large pan cook the rest of the onions in butter.
Add the flour and brown it lightly.
Add the mushroom mix, vegetable stock, and soy sauce to the onions and bring to a boil.
Remove the sauce from heat and serve it over tortellini. (I love Lotsa Pasta’s.)
Garnish with fresh grated Parmesan.
