Very Good 4.8/5

Delicious, low fat alternative to boxed side dishes that are full of sodium and have no taste. Perfect with chicken, or fish.

Omit cheese for vegan recipe.

Place a large nonstick skillit over medium-high heat. When hot, add the olive oil, then the mushrooms and garlic. Cook, stirring occasionally, untill the mushrooms are tender and excess moisture is evaporated, 6 to 8 minutes.

Add Worcestershire and pepper and cook until any additional moisture is evaporated and the mushrooms are lightly browned, 7 to 9 minutes. Season with salt and serve.

You can have your cake and eat it too. This is a yummy loaded potato dish and the only "diet" food is the butter. At just over 200 calories it is a wonderful comfort food and goes excellent with my 4 ounce filet mignon with no bacon.

This meal is a dieter's nightmare. I only make this when requested. Still delicious, so I'll share how to make this. Because I make it as an entertainment dish, the measurements are large, but can be pared down for a simple family meal. You may substitute Light versions of the dairy products to make it a bit healthier without sacrificing taste- I've not tried Far Free versions.

Really basic and better for you than mac n cheese from a box. Makes 12 big servings. I like to add in whatever veggies I have on hand. They tend to pick them out but at least I tried!

I know it looks like a long cooking time, but 25 of those minutes are boiling the potatoes. This recipe is so good, you won't mind at all!
