Italian Sauteed Mushrooms

1/2 lb. white button mushrooms ($.99)
1 tsp. canola oil ($.05)
1 clove garlic, smashed ($.05)
1 tsp. basil ($.05)
salt and pepper to taste ($.05)

Slice mushrooms thin, add oil to a nonstick pan over medium heat. When oil is hot, add mushrooms and season with salt and pepper. Cook for 5-6 minutes, stirring occasionally. When mushrooms are almost fork tender, add garlic and basil. Cook an additional 2-3 minutes.

Serve: on top of meat, poultry, or seafood, serve in gravies and sauces, serve with pasta or potatoes or over a rice dish.

Yields = 1 batch (2-3 servings)
Cost: $1.19

This is great to change up any leftover - top a leftover chicken breast with mushrooms and serve with a light sauce, gravy, or topped with melted cheese - works great on many dishes!
