"I have made this dish on several occasions. Tonight I didn't have yogurt and substituted sour cream, and omitted the green onion, however it is delicious with the onion. It is an easy and quick recipe for those busy weeknights. My family like the gravy on noodles or bread. This is a must try if your family likes mushrooms!"
