“As I've said before, I LOVE mushrooms, so here is another great recipe using them. Make this with a variety of mushrooms,and hot paprika, or smoked paprika, very nice. This is from Marie on another recipe site. Mega suggested the following: "One thing I changed was to use an 8oz brick of low fat cream cheese instead of the milk and flour. " Give it a try!”
