Amazing! As others have mentioned....there is a lot of butter in this. But I went ahead and used it (this was so delicious, I'm glad I did!), then used half-and-half instead of cream. I used a mix of baby portabellos, oyster, and shiitake mushrooms. The subtle nuances from the spices are wonderful....A definite make again recipe! Thanks for sharing! Made for PRMR Tag.
