2 tbsp olive oil
500 grams of garlicky (non-sweet) longganisa
250g fresh mushrooms, sliced
1 pack nestle cream
blue cheese, thumb size
1 tsp garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

what you'll do;

2. Fry the longanisa. When the half done, divide into small pieces with the use of the fying spatula. COntinue cooking the longanisa meat for a few minutes.
3. Throw in the mushrooms, saute 3 minutes longer.
4. Add the nestle cream, simmer for a minute
5. Then add the blue cheese. Keep stirring until it melts and the sauce thickens.
