A different twist to pasta sauce this one is neither tomato based nor cream based. Simple and delicious. The mushrooms used can be changed for your favorite kind, next time I will probably add some chanterelles in there - yummy. Can be served over pasta or rice, also great for freezing.

This makes a good sauce. However I think next time I will cut the ground beef in half and add more tomatoes. I did use the healthy request version of Campbells Cream of Mushroom and added some Fat Free half and half to thin it out as suggested, it would have been too thick otherwise. Thanks for an enjoyable meal
