Portobello mushrooms and three kinds of cheese give an upscale spin to a classic casserole. To make this more of an entree, I add 2 cups of cubed cooked chicken.—Dawn Moore, Warren, Pennsylvania

MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 30, 2014

"It was good but I would bake covered . It really dried out and didn't look like the picture. I know with all that cream and cheese how could it dry out right.... but it did. It is really heavy and hard to think of eating it when I was making the sauce.. wow Don't think I would make again but glad I tried it."
