I've never actually tried this recipe--it's my best guess to correct my mistakes from last time I tried this dish

I actually had to add in a little heavy cream to get the color and consistency that I wanted, but it tasted just like at the restaurant. I'm sure I'll be making it again.....

  3. Reduce heat to low and add garlic; cook and stir for about 1 min.
  4. Add tomato, mushrooms, Marsala wine, and Italian seasoning one at a time, allowing about 1-2 min between each for liquid to evaporate.
