I love it when you can walk through your local grocer or farmers market and instantly come up with a terrific side dish or an idea for a dinner entree (side dish in this instance).  Lately I’ve been using mushrooms in my cooking and developing recipes where certain varieties serve as the main focus.  From soups and stews to appetizers and pastas, they are as versatile ingredient as any other.  Here, I’ve simply used a few ingredients to make a simple and quick to prepare side dish.  You can even freeze it (once it’s cooled completely) and use it at a later date.
