We made this with some scratch chicken matzo ball soup and this for dinner in celebration of passover. We filled up on matzo balls so much that we only ate a tiny bit. Although a few nights later I turned this into some 'mashed potatoes' and made it into a fabu shepards pie. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe.

I actually made this as a snack meal. I therefore added cheese to the mushroom and onions. It tasted really nice, so thanks for this recipe!

Oh yum! Hi Karen, this recipe is awesome! Added some roasted garlic to the dish. Otherwise, I behaved myself and didn't go adding or deleting anything. What can be bad with potatoes, onions and mushrooms. Oops, I cooked the onions until they were caramelized. Thanks so much for sharing, Diane :=)
