We all prepare a variety of foods in our kitchen and always need a sauce or dressing to go with it. That is why it is important to have an all-purpose, go-to sauce that is great with just about anything in your cooking repertoire. Over the years I have tried all kinds of sauces and this Creamy Mushroom Sauce is one that I fall back on time and time again. I think you will too once you try it.
Less Than 30 Minutes to Prepare
Except for the mushrooms, this sauce uses mostly pantry ingredients and refrigerator staples like butter and milk. You can use either fresh or dried parsley or any herb of your choice. Best of all, it takes less than 30 minutes to prepare. Can’t beat that!
