I've made this with and without the Madeira and it's good both ways. It's low in carbs but very filling for lunch if you add a salad. Takes a little bit of work to prepare since you have to roast the mushrooms but it's worth it. And quite honestly, I don't think it's that good as leftovers. I prefer it right off the stove.
