I got this recipe from my sister. It's very easy to make in one skillet and YUMMY!! Love some crusty bread to go along with this dish... and don't forget the wine!

LOVED THIS girlswguns! I didn't have fresh mushrooms so I used 20g dried porchini, soaked for half hour. I also used 1/2 an onion instead of green onions and parmesan cheese in lieu of cheddar. The result was to die for!! Sending it to Mum so she can cook it for Dad!!
