Tips & Variations

No special items needed.



The mushroom sauce is so delicious...I used the cremini and shiitake...the only change I made was to use dried thyme because I didn't have fresh...this is going on my best of 2022 list...made for "Billboard" tag game...

We really liked this -- my mushrooms were all cremini mushrooms and I forgot the thyme and mustard, but it was great the way we had it with potatoes and zucchini. Thanks for sharing!
