  2. Heat remaining oil in same pan. Add garlic, tomatoes and mushrooms. Cook, stirring for about 3 minutes, or until mushrooms are tender and lightly browned.  
  3. Stir in evaporated milk and mustard. Bring to the boil. Reduce heat. Gently boil for about 5 minutes, stirring often, until thickened.
