Great recipe! It was pretty quick and easy and very good. There were a couple major adjustments however that I made. I ended up using about 1/2 cup half and half, since I didnt have heavy cream on hand. Either way 1/8 would not have been enough. Also 1 pound of mushrooms seemed like a bit much, I ended up using 2 small cans of mushrooms instead. I just didnt saute them. Thirdly 5 teaspoons seemed a bit outrageous, and this is from someone who loves pepper. I used about 1 1/2 teaspoons of pepper instead. Fourthly, insyead of using 2 tablespoons of Paprika, I started with one teaspoon and from there added a little more to taste. And lastly, had I added 3 cups of cheddar cheese, we may as well have had nachos, so I just added about 1 1/2 cups. It turned out great!


I hadn't read any of the reviews before I made this dish and found it to be absolutely amazing that people would actually use 5 tsps. of pepper and then complain that there was too much pepper in this recipe! I used about 3/4 of a tsp. and it was delicious. Thanks shadowhawk!


Delicious! I added a bit more soup than it called for and to cut down on the calories and fat I used a fat free mushroom soup and instead of cream I used 1% milk. It was really good and I WILL make it again!
