Lovely recipe Sharon that adds another dimension to mushrooms. Just enough "spice" to give some oomph

What a winner! We loved these mushrooms. I made the whole recipe that was suppose to serve 4 -- but the two of us gobbled them down! I didn't change a thing -- followed the directions as they were written. These were served along side another of Sharon's recipes, "Baked Salmon With Caper Sauce". Made this for the Cookathon at Kittencalskitchen in memory of Sharon 123's husband.
