This was the first dish I ever made for my boyfriend Jim, now my husband (after a 12 year courtship!). I was nervous making this because I had never made it before, but it sounded good, so I took a chance. We both loved it, especially the mushroom sauce. I promptly lost the recipe, and just recently found it again. Jim had mentioned several times over the years how good that mushroom sauce was, so I was quite pleased to be able to make it for him again.

I hope you enjoy this as much as we do!

I halved the recipe for the two of us, with leftovers.

Lots of ingredients, but easy to make!
