Notes

This makes a surprising amount of food once the mushrooms and spinach are in the sauce. I am not a big fan of any kind of fat free cheese, but this came out well. The next time I make this I will try to saute the mushrooms a bit longer, plus add some salt to the sauce. The Parmesan cheese adds a little sodium, but not enough for my taste.
