You won’t have to heat up the kitchen to prepare this saucy microwave entree. “I’ve made this recipe for covered dish dinners, and it always goes over great, writes field editor Betty Claycomb of Alverton, Pennsylvania.
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings

Ingredients

  • 1/2 pound sliced fresh mushrooms
