Cooking Thursday

 How do you feel about mushrooms?  It seems you either love them or hate them!  I love them, but unfortunately no one else in my family does.  And if I decide to cook some up for myself, I get accused of smelling up the house!  So, I don't make them very often, but every once in a while, they are a treat!!
I saw this for mushrooms that could be used as a side, on top of meat or just eaten by themselves, and it only takes about 10 minutes!  It's a winner!  And, oh my goodness - they are good!
One note - there was plenty of sauce, and I think you could use 12 ounces mushrooms instead of 8 ounces if you wanted to.

Creamy Garlic Parmesan Mushrooms

2 tablespoons butter
1 tablespoon olive oil
8-12 ounces sliced mushrooms
2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 cup heavy cream
1/4 cup grated parmesan cheese
2 ounces softened cream cheese
1 teaspoon Italian Seasoning
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper

In medium skillet, add butter and olive oil.  Add mushrooms and garlic and saute until tender.
Add heavy cream, parmesan cheese, cream cheese, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper.  Stir together with mushrooms and heat until sauce is bubbly and smooth.  Serve immediately.
