MY REVIEW
Reviewed Mar. 31, 2013

"I thought this was excellent. I changed it a bit because it sounded like it lacked flavor. I sauted 3 T onion then added minced garlic clove other ingredients but instead of cream I added 1/2 c sour cream and about 3 T of cream cheese and a splash of milk. Also fresh mushrooms instead of canned. It was surprisingly good and everyone loved it."
