Delicious! I was really wanting some comfort food, and this hit the spot. I doubled about everything, and added a half of a diced onion while sauteeing the mushrooms, then an extra 2 teaspoons of salt, 1/2 teaspoon of pepper, and a cup or two of sweet peas. I didn't have any chips, so I topped it with french onions. Wow, it sure was delish! Thanks for a marvelous dairy-free recipe!

I should add I covered mine with prob a third of a bag of low fat kettle brand potato chips and that helped a lot with the missing flavor of the soup. A 1/4 cup as listed would hardly cover any of the large casserole.

This was pretty good! I made it wheat free by substituting rice for the pasta and corn starch for the flour. It "barely" served 4... with two of those being children. Next time I'll add more veggies. Nice recipe!
