The first time I made this recipe, I made it as submitted and it was very good. Even my picky eaters finished their dinner. The second time, I did add 1 tablespoon of flour to the mixture after adding the chicken broth. This made the sauce a little thicker without affecting the taste. I have also used many different types of mushrooms and it always comes out great. Great recipe!

Wow! One of the best recipes ever! Like others, I lightened it by using half and half. I also used vegetable broth to make it vegetarian. I would definitely serve this to company.,

This receipe was easy and delicious! My granddaughter's boyfriend is a vegatarian and he loved it. We ate it all at one sitting (just 3 of us) and the boyfriend made it for his parents. They also liked it a lot. Thanks for a great recipe.

This was FABULOUS! I used half and half rather than heavy whipping cream, and it was plenty rich. YUM! My whole family raved! We will definitely make this again.
