Fettuccine with Mushroom Cream Sauce

Cream sauce is my favorite kind of sauce. If it was healthier, I would probably put a cream sauce on everything. This mushroom cream sauce is undoubtably the best mushroom sauce Ive ever had. Because it includes white wine, chicken broth and heavy cream it has a really great flavor that rivals any restaurant mushroom sauce I’ve ever had. It is also incredibly easy, and this meal can be finished within a half hour of starting.
