Says Cathy Casement-McDowell of Tulsa, Oklahoma: “The great thing about this recipe is you only have to do the prep work once, but get two meals from it! It’s easy to modify for any taste: use cream of chicken soup for celery, frozen or canned peas or green beans for mushrooms, etc.”

"I make this using Campbell's healthy Request Soups and omit the mushrooms. I also use half 2% cheese and half regular cheese. My husband & I like the convenience of having a homemade (frozen)meal on a busy week night. This recipe is a keeper at our house!!"

"Yummy comfort food! I cook the entire meal in a 13"x9" dish. I substitute crm of chicken for the crm of celery soup, substitute a small chopped onion for the dried onion, and use half cheddar (2 cups) and half sharp cheddar (2 cups)."

"This was great! I added a few scoops of sour cream, several drops of tabasco, and canned chestnuts for a bit of crunch. Stepped up the taste just a tad!"
