8 ounces white mushroom, sliced
3 cloves garlic, minced

1/2 cup heavy cream
1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
1 tablespoon dried basil

In a large skillet heat the olive oil over medium high heat. Add in the sliced mushrooms and minced garlic. Cook for 3 minutes stirring occasionally. Add in the sun dried tomatoes and reduce the heat to medium.

Slowly pour in the chicken broth and continue to cook on medium heat, stirring occasionally, until the broth has reduce a little bit. Add in 1/2 cup of half and half and all of the heavy cream. Bring the mixture to a boil and let boil for about 15 seconds. Reduce the heat to medium low.
