Notes

  1. To ensure that the mushrooms fry well, it is important to not crowd the pan too much. 
  2. Adjust the amount of pepper according to your spice level. 
  3. If you leave the sauce unattended while it is thickening, and it gets too thick, don't worry. Just add a little more milk and let it simmer for 1-2 minutes.
