3 c. baby spinach leaves, washed

HOW TO MAKE CREAMY GARLIC BUTTER TUSCAN MUSHROOMS
Step 1: Melt the butter in a large skillet over medium-high heat. To the melted butter, add the onion and saute until translucent. Then, add the garlic and continue to cook for another minute until aromatic. Next, add the sun-dried tomatoes and oil and cook for additional 2 minutes. This will release the flavors from the sun-dried tomatoes. Add the mushrooms and cook for approximately 5 minutes more.
Step 2: At this point, you can add the white wine or broth (if using). Let it decrease in half, scraping any bits off from the bottom of the pan. This step is optional.
Step 3: Adjust the heat to low-medium heat, then add the cream. Bring everything to a gentle simmer, stirring often. To taste, season with salt and pepper.
Step 4: To the pan, add the spinach leaves and let them wilt. Next, add the Parmesan cheese. Simmer the sauce for a minute more until the cheese has melted. You can add the milk/cornstarch mixture to the middle of the pan and continue to simmer while stirring vigorously until the sauce has thickened.
Step 5: Stir in the herbs. Serve the creamy garlic butter Tuscan mushrooms garnished with some parsley. Enjoy this over mashed cauliflower, zucchini noodles, or steamed veggies. You can also serve this over rice, mashed potatoes, or even pasta.
