A fantastic recipe and loved by all, I used whole fresh button mushroom though instead of tinned and added a little cream to the mix to make the sauce go that little bit further. Highly recommended!

Growing up, I remember my grandma always baking it and adding tomato paste, so this is what I did: Added 3 tablespoons of tomato paste when mixing in water, then adding sour cream and baking for 90 minutes - delicious!

Prepared this exactly as didn't turn out like I expected it to--It tasted fine, but the sauce didn't thicken up, and wasn't as creamy as I thought it would be. I had just pictured a creamier dish. But it was a tasty dish, and easy to prepare. Thanks for the recipe. :)
