My hubby said it reminded him of the "Chinese" casserole his mom prepared. I used fresh mushrooms and totally failed to notice the recipe was intended for the crock-pot until I was preparing dinner. I sauted the veggies and then mixed everything and baked at 325 degrees until hot and bubbly. I stirred in half of the cashews and used the rest to top the casserole. My stars are for what I ended up with. So sorry about not following the cooking instructions!
