This feels like a little luxury.The mushrooms add a meatiness to the dish, the creamy mushroom sauce adds a slight tang that some sauces couldn’t.  The recipe gets its depth from four umami-packed ingredients: creamy mushroom sauce, foraged mushrooms, English peas, and parmesan.  Together, they create a dish so savory and delicious.
