- 1 cup water
- 1/2 ounce dried porcini mushrooms
- 1/4 cup finely chopped onion
- 1-1/2 cups sliced fresh shiitake mushrooms
- 3 teaspoons butter, divided
- 2 ounces reduced-fat cream cheese
- 1/4 teaspoon salt
- 1/8 teaspoon pepper
- 32 wonton wrappers
- 2 cups sliced fresh button mushrooms
- 2 garlic cloves, minced
- 1 cup Italian tomato sauce
- 2 tablespoons shredded Parmesan cheese
- 2 tablespoons minced fresh parsley
- In a small saucepan, combine water and porcini mushrooms. Bring to a boil. Remove from the heat; let stand for 30 minutes. Drain, reserving liquid. Finely chop mushrooms; set aside.
- In a small nonstick skillet, saute onion and shiitake mushrooms in 2 teaspoons butter until tender. Add porcini mushrooms and 1/4 cup soaking liquid. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, for 3-5 minutes or until liquid has evaporated. Remove from the heat. Stir in the cream cheese, salt and pepper. Cool to room temperature.

Repeat with remaining wrappers.
