I'm also one who read the recipe and went a little askew, because I didn't print it or have my computer in the kitchen. I'm a messy cook and that does not go well with a laptop. :) I used 1 can of mushroom soup, 1/2 packet of onion soup mix (to hold back a little too much flavor for my son,and skim milk (just forgot if it was milk or water, but hey, skim milk is pretty much water!). Made for delicious dinner that was quick and easy as I used my own turkey meatballs that I make in large quantities and freeze when I make meatloaves. I had some leftover light mac and cheese and steamed some fresh broc. and carrots.

Unfortunately, my mom wasn't feeling well, so it was just dad and my son. I had mushrooms sliced and ready to mix into hers separately.

Thanks for a great go-to meal. I'm usually pretty picky about wanting to do everything from scratch, but have enjoyed a few meals for ease...this is def. one!

This was a good, easy meal- my family (including 2 toddlers) liked it. We served it over egg noodles

Nice and easy. My boys loved these and it didn't take hardly any time. I served over mashed potatoes, mmmmmm.
