Mushroom Balsamic Vinegar Sauce

This flavourful Mushroom Balsamic Vinegar Sauce is ready in 10 minutes. It is so versatile it is a great sauce for pasta or chicken or beef. If you are in a hurry for something quick that tastes good with easy ingredients look no further!

This is a great sauce if you are counting calories. Only 1 Tablespoon of olive oil and you could probably use cooking spray because it is only to saute the garlic. It probably adds a bit of body to the sauce but you could try it without if you are inclined.

I usually put Mushroom Balsamic Vinegar Sauce on pasta because it is so flavourful. Today I am putting it on chicken thighs.

And… did I mention how quickly you can make it? 10 minutes or less. Except for fresh mushrooms you probably have all the ingredients in your pantry.

If you use pre-sliced mushroom it is a real cinch.

You can ‘fancy’ it up a bit if you use a blend of mushrooms or even add in some reconstituted porcini mushrooms.
