"The tartness of the Swiss cheese seemed to drown out the other flavors."

"I've made this before, but this is the first time i've rated it. I can't see anything "blah" about it.....I used two cloves of garlic, and it was zingy with robust garlic flavor and so delicious! I also used more mushrooms than it called for; the flavor of the mushrooms came through and everyone loved the dish. This is a keeper for me!"

"I thought it was a little too blah for my liking and also thought it was a little bit dry. I added some garlic salt and half a can of mushroom soup...that really helped."
