Delicious! I modified to fit my tastes: -Instead of 12 oz silken tofu, used 8 oz silken tofu (left over from another recipe) -Instead of 2 cups cheddar, used ~1 cup mozzarella and 1/2 cup blue cheese -Added 24 oz sauteed mushrooms -Added fresh thyme and scallions Thank you!

i made a few variations - used 8 oz. tofu shirataki noodles (since that's what i have around), cut all the other ingredients in half (except used 1 1/2 cups of cheddar), omitted the mustard powder, since i didn't have it. i'll be making this again
