I found this rare mushroom called Chicken of the Woods Mushroom in a local farmers market in upstate New York. The name of this mushroom refer to its taste and look. As it can be a great substitute for chicken meat. it's a low calorie, low fat, high-protein and high fiber food. I decided to cook for a vegetarian style pasta with it.
