My Tips for Success:

If you want to take this dish to the next level, consider using a mix of wild mushrooms for added depth of flavor. Additionally, don’t skimp on the Parmesan cheese – it’s the secret ingredient that elevates the entire dish. For a healthier twist, you can substitute the heavy cream with a splash of vegetable broth and a dollop of Greek yogurt.
