  • 3 Tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 4 garlic cloves chopped
  • 16 oz sliced baby bella mushrooms
  • 1 teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 1/2 cup white wine
  • ½ cup chicken broth
  • 3/4 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tablespoon grated parmesan cheese
  • 2 Tablespoon parsley chopped


  • Melt butter in a large 12 inch skillet over medium heat. Add garlic and saute for about 10 seconds.
  • Add mushrooms and stir for about 10-15 minutes, until softened and reduced. Add thyme.
  • Pour in white wine and stir, using a wooden spoon to scrape any brown bits at the bottom of the skillet. Allow to cook until the wine has mostly evaporated, about 1 minute.
  • Pour in chicken broth and allow it simmer for 1-2 minutes. Then add the heavy cream and allow to cook for an additional 3 minutes, until the heavy cream has thickened.
  • Remove from heat, stir in the grated parmesan cheese. Garnish with chopped parsley.


  • I use Chardonnay wine in this recipe. Any dry white wine will work.
  • I love the flavor of baby bella mushrooms but white button mushrooms may be used as well.
  • This sauce goes well over pasta, brown rice, or your favorite protein.
  • Make it vegetarian by using vegetable broth and a rennet free hard cheese rather than parmesan.
  • Cook the mushrooms well before adding the liquids, this is how you create the flavor.
