I made this recipe tonight as a side dish. I wish I could give it a better score but I can't. I found it to be on the bland side. I will try this recipe again but I will be adding seasonings to the dish and not just over the top. I think I may add more sour cream and cottage cheese to juice it up a bit more too. I followed the directions to the T as well as baking times. Next time I try this recipe I will do another review and maybe I will be able to give it a good rating.

I'm CRAZY for mushrooms! We had this tonight as a side with baked chicken breasts and it was REALLY tasty! Being garlic and pepper lovers, I couldn't control myself and added in 2 LARGE cloves of pressed garlic and LOTS of black pepper. I also subbed barley for the rice. This is going on the regular rotation, for CERTAIN! Thanks for posting a super YUMMY, EASY recipe. I love SIMPLE recipes for weeknights, but this could easily be served for company! Great job!
