      So simple to prepare and exceptional flavor with each bite. Mary Ann you've done it again! Served up with some nice Italian bread, me and my family enjoyed it very much!

      Made this today for a delicious lunch. I doubled the garlic (love garlic!), added a minced onion and some thyme, and used a low-fat cream (not sure if that's what was meant by light cream; perhaps that just means runny as opposed to thickened cream?) Anyway, it was a thin low-fat cream that I used! After the sausages were cooked, I removed them briefly from the pan, chopped them into bite size pieces and then returned the pieces and cooked them for probably another minute before returning the mushrooms, onion and garlic to the pan. Thank you for sharing an easy and delicious recipe, Linda! Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
