We thought this was fantastic! It came together simply, and the taste was surprising and delicious. I diced up some baby carrots because that's what I had on hand. I omitted celery and mushroom because I hate them. I omitted the butter during the frying phase and used olive oil instead. We had 2% milk, and I dotted the top with margarine. I sprinkled salt and pepper over the top and did not use enough to think it was salty. The cook times were perfect, and we all ate several plates (except my 4 year old, who saw the green onions and demanded cereal). This was a pretty dish, and I think it would do nicely for company or a carry-in. Thanks for a yummy new recipe for my "keeper" pile!

Very different and tasty. To cut the salt I substituted light soya for some regular soya. I cut the salt in half but next time will omit all together. Easy to make and it was enjoyed by everyone.
