I prefer these vegetarian, but you can add the ground beef.

I've been meaning to review this. I initially hunted you down because I love the way you photograph food! I was attracted to this recipe because meat was optional. Since my DIL is a vegetarian, I figured I'd stick a carton of mushrooms with a small onion in the food processor, and saute that. I drained it and proceeded with the recipe. Fantastic! Next time I did this for her, I was too lazy to go through all the rigamarole, so I just sautéed and drained a carton of sliced mushrooms, and followed the recipe. This was actually her preferred method. The ingredients are spot on, and the Jarlsberg cheese, while pricey, is a must! Thanks for the recipe....and your beautiful pics of food!
