I used goat cheese instead of cream cheese and sour cream instead of milk. Fabulous!
chiffinade some basel to sprinkle on top and some nice Regianno grated.
Serve with Garlic bread. If you use low fat sour cream you will cut calories down and olive oil for the saute instead of butter.

So yummy! I just made it a bit healthier by using 1 T olive oil instead of butter and milk instead of cream and also added some spinach. It was great- thanks!

Thick and Creamy! I used a pound of pasta added thyme. Mushrooms and thyme go so well together. I also used light cream. When I added the pasta to the sauce I also added some pasta water. Thanks for a yummy dish!
