MY REVIEW
Reviewed Nov. 5, 2013

I made this recipe as written and it was a really good "comfort meal" on a gloomy fall day. My husband loved it. Will definitely make again; I think there could be a lot of minor changes and substitutions depending on what I have on hand and it would still be delicious.

MY REVIEW

Good but bland. I try not to use processed foods but had to live with the canned soup. I substituted plain yogurt for the mayonnaise and rehydrated shitakies for the canned mushrooms. Also added chopped cashews and grated asiago cheese to the topping, left out the salt, added pepper, sprinkled in some rosemary and baked covered until a few minutes before the end. This dish makes great use of leftovers, but next time I'll spice it up more. Also, I cooked a cup of rice and added almost all of it in before realizing it called for a cup of cooked rice, not raw rice cooked. Next time it will be juicier!
