Servings 4


  • 16 ounces mushrooms (baby bellas/large crimini work best)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 tablespoon olive oil
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 1 teaspoon lemon juice
  • 4 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 dash Italian seasoning
  • Salt & pepper to taste
  • Freshly grated parmesan cheese optional, to taste
  • Fresh parsley, chopped optional, to taste


  • Melt the butter and oil in a skillet over medium-high heat. When the pan is hot, add the mushrooms. Cook them for 5-7 minutes, stirring occasionally. Mushrooms should start to brown on the outside and shrink a little.
  • Add the cream, lemon juice, garlic, and Italian seasoning to the pan. Cook for another 5 minutes or until the sauce has thickened a bit and the mushrooms are cooked through.
  • Season with salt & pepper as needed, and grate some fresh parmesan and sprinkle fresh parsley over top if desired.
