    Genius! I also added shrimp, cooked in the olive oil till just opaque then set aside, deglazed the pan with white wine, then added the butter and proceeded as written. Served over tri-color couscous. Yum! - 4/5/09

    I just loved this. I used regular olive oil instead of extra virgin which added tons of flavour, and added shrimp and scallops into the mix, and ate the whole thing as lunch. Was superb!! - 4/4/09

    Tasty, but I just sprayed the pan w/olive oil pam, used a t of regular butter and mccormick's salt free all purpose seasoning and everything else the same - plugged all the ingredients into the food tracker, ate it all -and had 84 calories. Thanks for the inspiration. - 3/28/09

    I'm so glad you enjoyed it! I would probably have done it your way if I wasn't using the recipe for a cooking competition (which I was) - the only thing "fat" means to judges is flavour haha.

    Made this with shiitake rather than button muschrooms. Turned out great, and it was quick and simple! - 2/10/10
