      Just what I was looking for! I used whole milk instead of cream because it's what I had, and it turned out nicely - with cream I'm sure it would have been even better. This was easier than I expected and turned out really well. Served with toasted baguette slices and a nice white wine - it was a hit!

      I used the mushroom variation with this wonderful dish. It is so quick to make and oh so delicious. Not having a red bell pepper, I tossed in a green bell pepper along with a couple of sun dried tomatoes. I served this with Green Beans With Pine Nuts for a very satisfying dinner.
