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.

It was ok. Not good enough to go to all the trouble for a side dish though.

This was pretty good. My husband said he liked it.
