"Loved it. Makes the perfect amount to feed my family and freeze half for another night. I also skipped the dried mushrooms and blue cheese"

"This is a great comfort food and so good on a cold winter's night.

I didn't use the Bleu cheese because my family doesn't care for it and I just used button mushrooms instead of the portabello and dried mushrooms."

"I have made this recipe twice in the last 2 months. Great leftovers. I did not boil dried mushrooms, just cut up the portobello mushrooms."

"I ordered my free trial and wasn't going to order, then I made this recipe and it sold me...the other ones on the same page look great too. Love the blue cheese addition. I served it over barley and it was a huge hit."
