      This is really tasty!! I had to cook mine longer than the recipe states since the dishes I chose only withstood up to 390 degrees. I left out the mushrooms (DH doesn't like) but otherwise made as directed. DH and I agreed that it needed some peas/carrots in the filling and next time I will use crumbled sausage rather than the meatballs. Made for Recipe Swap #56.

      What a yummie comfort dinner. You couldn't do any better on a chill Fall night. I lightened it by using veggie "sausage" patties (crumbled up), canola oil for the butter with a bit of Molly McButter for the flavor and fat free coffee creamer for the light cream. It came out delicious and creamy and it would have been far too easy to eat two of them but I managed to stop at one...mainly because DH said that he wanted his and I only made two servings. Try this, you'll love it!
