"With no rating and no picture I was reluctant to try this recipe, but the list of ingredients intrigued me. I am SO happy I took the risk! I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned, eliminated the pimentos (couldn't see purchasing this item for only one recipe), I had to use the rest of my heavy cream so I substituted 3/4 of the milk foe the cream and used 1/3 cup extra of parmesan cheese...... This was the first meal in years that my 14 year old complimented dinner! We all enjoyed it VERY much! You gotta try it!"
