I serve this dish both ways, usually as a side dish. However, when it is only hubby and I, we would have it as a light dinner with a small side salad or two.

Double the recipe when you have more guests !  When my  kids are home, I do, and the doubled recipe is enough as a light dinner.

No extra Salt is added as the Soup Powder is salty enough for the whole dish.

Next time you need a side dish, or a quick light dinner, consider this recipe as it is done in under 25 minutes !

With the minimum attention needed and all the ingredients are standard and you should have everything on hand.

Yum! I might just have to make that for my son and I as a treat...he and I are the only ones who like mushrooms here. So sometimes I make something with mushrooms just for us...he loves that!
