Recipe by Buster's friend
As a respite from The Turkey, this lovely almost-vegetarian recipe found on a wonderful blog, Poppyseeds & Tiger Lilies, http://poppyseedsandtigerlilies.blogspot.com/2009/11/magazine-mondays-creamy-mushroom-and.html , sure hit the spot. The author notes this is a recipe she adapted from volume 38 of Donna Hay magazine. Both the dish & the blog are worth checking out. I am posting so I misplace neither. Can be made really vegetarian with vegetable stock in place of the beef stock. Serve with your favorite sauteed green or simple green salad for a full meal.
- 8 ounces egg noodles, wide ones
- 2 tablespoons olive oil
- 1 garlic clove, diced
- 1⁄2 lb button mushroom, sliced
- 30 sage leaves, fresh medium
- 1 cup slivered almonds
- 1⁄2 cup medium-dry sherry
- 1 cup beef stock (vegetable stock for vegetarian)
- 1⁄2 cup light cream
- sea salt, to taste
- black pepper, freshly-ground, to taste
- 1 cup parmesan cheese, grated
