Very good. Next time I think I'll use beef broth but other wise its great. Kids loved it and it doubled well. I left out the oil and cooked the mushrooms and onion in a little bit of broth (to stay true to my diet). Will make again.

Really delicious and easy to make. We love kasha and I'm always looking for something just as good as the usual kasha varnishka. I think this recipe is even better! I added some chopped celery to the onions and mushrooms and a little more water...maybe 1/4cup and then 1 cup of small pasta. Next time I might even add some chopped green pepper...Thanks for a great recipe!
