This was really easy and good. I ended up adding 1/2 teaspoon dried basil, 1/2 teaspoon dried oregano, and 1/8 teaspoon dried thyme, crushed to give this dish a little bit more flavor without adding fat. I would definitely make it again.

We really liked this a lot but I'll have to agree that it needs a bit more seasoning. I would probably saute garlic in w/ shallots & mushrooms and add a bit of salt along with the pepper. I will make it again. We served it over rice.

I don't see where all the stars came from,I found this to be virtually tasteless! Smelled great, but the sauce was too thin and the taste was bland!
