Found on a Swiss website for ZWT7. :) This recipe can easily made either meatless or with meat by replacing part of the mushrooms with small pieces of veal.

Giving this 5 stars because the flavor is delicious, and the contrast between the puff pastry and the mushrooms is great. I felt as if I were in a restaurant. However, there were a couple problems with it. The sauce was too thin (I used Wondra to thicken it). In addition, there weren't amounts specified for the spices. Since I made only half a recipe, I used the following: 1/2 t. curry powder, 1/4 t. paprika and 1/8 t. nutmeg. I baked the crust at 375 convection for 20 minutes. (That would translate to 400 degrees for a regular oven, 15 - 20 minutes, I believe.) We ate the entire half-batch for dinner. I will definitely be making this again, probably with the other sheet of puff pastry in the freezer. ZWT7
