I adopted this recipe after Shelly left the site. Although she has been under the influence of South Beach, this girl knows good carbs. Shelly's original comments: "This is also from a Frugal Gourmet cookbook. Delicious and simple. Cooking time includes the 2 hours to reconstitute the dried mushrooms."
