      This was very good, but I did add more lemon, paprika and sherry to up the flavor a little. Served with brown rice. Thanks and good luck!

      I have to admit, I skipped a step and used garlic that was already roasted. But that doesn't matter, what matters is that it was a good recipe, but a little underwhelming. I used more bell pepper and cheese than what the recipe prescribed (not the chef's fault, but when it cimes to cheese recipe I always add more cheese to it). I liked the way the cornstarch thickened the sauce, it was a nice thing to include. I also like the addition of the tomato paste. I think the seasonings need to be doubled though.

      Made and reviewed for RSC #15. The final taste was fine, but understated, and the recipe was a little awkward because the cook tried a little too hard to fit in the prescribed number of ingredients. It is too uneconomical to heat an oven to roast 6 garlic cloves, so I used chopped fresh garlic, I'm afraid. The thyme and oregano were too little to make much impact, and the 2 teaspoons bell peppers ... hey, too little!! Same for the sherry, paprika, and lemon zest! (Mushrooms can handle quite a good glug of sherry!) The recipe came across as a little "hastily thrown together", but I might be wrong. If this is an inexperienced cook with her/his first creative experiment, all is forgiven! That's what made this entry hard to judge! Thanks, I'm sure a next recipe will be perfect!
