A Healthy Spin on Comfort Food

Mushroom Skillet Lasagna by Savory Simple

When cold weather strikes, images of gooey mac and cheese, hearty sandwiches and creamy soup top the list of meal choices.  In between the decadence, we all want to strike a healthy meal balance.  When it comes to serving a great meal, The Mushrooom Channel believes a line doesn’t have to be drawn between what tastes good and what’s good for you. When you add mushrooms to the plate, you can have the best of both worlds in one serving.  Check out our round up of recipes from around the web that are perfect for a cozy fall night in.
