Ben and I love chicken Marsala. Especially Ben. He’s one of those guys that orders the same thing every time we go to certain restaurants. I’m the opposite, I like to try something new every time.

Sometimes I get in a rut after I have something that is so delicious that I can’t help but order it every time. Then I’ll get antsy and feel like I need to try something else, which I end up regretting 75% of the time.

So maybe Ben has the right idea – find something you love and stick with it. Don’t be swayed by new and fancy menu items. I’m always swayed. But I just love trying new things that catch my eye.

That said, he might be on to something with the chicken Marsala. The flavors of the Marsala wine, chicken, and mushrooms — yum. It’s such a classic dish, and with good reason.

But if I had to choose one thing – chicken or the mushrooms, I’d choose the mushrooms. I’m a huge mushroom lover, especially if they are roasted like they are in this recipe. I use regular white button mushrooms but any variety of mushroom would be great.

So I’m combining two of my favorite things: roasted mushrooms and Marsala — and these Marsala roasted mushrooms are the delicious result. A star is born!

This is a super simple recipe and makes a great side dish. I’m thinking steak, of course, but also grilled chicken or pork. They are so good tossed on a salad, or mixed with rice or couscous. Roasted mushrooms will really jazz up kind of a humdrum meal.

Another reason I like to make these Marsala roasted mushrooms is that you don’t even have to get a bowl dirty. Throw the mushrooms on your sheet pan, toss with the other ingredients and roast away in a super hot oven. They’re ready in about 20 minutes.
