Creamy Mushrooms

This is a really simple and creamy mushroom dish with a little bit of pepper, a lot of garlic and a generous grating of nutmeg. I remember tasting this at my brother in law’s house years ago and I loved it.  Of course I asked for the recipe. This dish is extremely flavorful and I serve this with a pasta dish. You can definitely cook this with butter because everything tastes better with butter, right? However, to keep the calorie count low I have used vegetable oil and a little bit of butter after the cooking is done. The best part about this recipe is how quick it is. From start to finish you’re done in about 15 minutes @sarchakra
