We all really enjoyed this dish! Even my toddler ate them. ;) I had baby portabellos on hand, but no fresh thyme (like I thought I did), so I used dried. Thanks for sharing, tony! Made & enjoyed for Spring 2010 Pick A Chef.

Made for Fall PAC 2008 - had oyster, portbello, and crimini 'shrooms, prepared as directed. This was an entirely different taste sensation - usually do more butter and sherry -- but this was really good ! Thanks tony, for posting.
