      This was great! I didn't bake it as long as recommended...I didn't think it needed it..I wasn't fixing but two servings... I left out the mushrooms since my husband wasn't here to eat them all... but it was very tasty and my daughter ate it so that was a plus.
      I've cooked/tasted this recipe!
