      I wanted to like this I really did but I just couldn't. I found it very bland and I was very dissapointed as I had paid a lot for my Shitake muhrooms. I know this is a low fat recipe but some spices would liven it up. Not a keeper I'm afraid!

      An elegant recipe, classic and mild. I added some red pepper for a little more pizzazz. This dish comes together quickly.
