I got thrown off the internet when I finished my review, so if this is a repeat, I apologize. This is a magnificent dish. Try adding a pinch or two of dried red chili flakes, and a handful of shredded low fat cheddar. If you still have any room, finish off with a cup of Balsamic Strawberries, #18708, topped with a dab of frozen whipped topping (no fat of course!) WOWSERS! That's a dinner!

Fantastic, with a few substitutions: organic veggie broth instead of beef broth, 1/2 oz dried porcini mushrooms, 1/2 dried shiitake mushrooms, and 2.5 cups sliced button mushrooms. I also took Clifford's suggestion with a few light dashes of cayenne and a handful of light, shredded 3-cheese blend when the mixture had reduced a little. I also added sea salt to taste - truly amazing and quick to make. This one's going in the 'Dinner Party' cookbook. :o)
