This was really good. Got it from a Rachael Ray cookbook. I used sliced mushrooms instead of mushroom caps because that's what I had on hand. Served together with roasted potatoes. I think the mushrooms would be good over pasta.
This was easy and fun to make, and delicious. I didn't have parsley, used arugula instead and it was good.
