This recipe does have quite a few ingredients, but it really goes together quickly and easily. Don’t let the amount of onions fool you….when they cook down you’ll have ½ of what you started with much like cooking spinach. Also if you have fresh mushrooms you can use them as well, for this dish I like the small button mushrooms that come in a jar. When cooking with wine “white or red “choose a wine you’d drink….not the stuff in the cooking isle. Bonus: if there is any wine left over you can sit and enjoy a glass or two of it.
