    This is one of my favorites from Better Homes and Gardens 75 Years All Time Favorites Cookbook. You must use wine instead for the 2/3c broth for the best flavor. I also use Creole Seas. Blend from this site mixed 50/ 50 with a commercial blend. This gives you lots of flavor with less salt.2T of this mix, 2 cloves garlic in place of the shallot, 6 cups mushrooms and because the extra mushrooms make it wet only 1/2c of broth.The capers are a must! This is worth the extra work.  -  31 Jul 2005  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)


    This dish was absolutely awesome!!!I did use white wine, because I love to cook with it. I sub. the first measurement of ckn broth with wine. The capers make the dish very elegant and instead of using the jarred pepper I roasted/charred a fresh one instead. One more thing, fresh spinach wilted in makes the dish sing.  -  09 Sep 2006  (Review from Allrecipes USA and Canada)
