This recipe came from the Rachael Ray show. Now, sometimes the recipes are good and sometimes, the recipes are not so tasty. This one, however I think was pretty good. I think the cream of mushroom is better than the canned soup, but that's my opinion. I am not above using the canned stuff, but sometimes, it's not what I want. I have adapted this to my taste and the things I keep on hand.
