dried mushrooms

I have a mass quantity of dried mushrooms because they were on sale and I was curious. I'm not wild about the flavor or texture when reconstituted, so I was wondering if I could grind them up in the food processor and use the powder to impart flavor to sauces or stews. A google search turned up lots of interesting links about grinding up "shrooms." That's a topic for another day.... I also saw that people use the mushroom powder in making pasta which sounds interesting but I don't have the time or equipment really to do that. Any thoughts as to how I can use them? By the way, they are not the whole dried shitakes. They are whiteish and sliced, and honestly I'm not sure what variety.
