VERY DRY. Wouldn't make this again.
Wow, this was creamy, flavorful and was well liked by all 10 of my dinner guests! Dinner was planned following a long hike in the mountains, so having a great dinner that was ready to just pop into the oven when we arrived back here was also terrific!
My family absolutely LOVED this casserole, and I loved having the made-for-freezing recipe format to use with leftover Thanksgiving turkey. Both casseroles turned out very creamy and well-seasoned. I did make several substitutions: 1) Bowtie pasta instead of linguine, at the request of my husband (he doesn't like the texture of linguine in a casserole); 2) Cream of chicken soup instead of cream of mushroom (due to my mushroom allergy); 3) Chopped onions instead of sliced mushrooms (again, due to my allergy). I froze these with the cooking instuctions on a post-it note in between the foil and the plastic wrap - super easy to cook on a busy evening after work!
Kind of dry and bland. My family didn't like it.
I don't know why one of the rating said this was dry..this turned out very creamy and very good. My family loved it (and it was so easy!). Thanks for the great recipe! I'm keeping this one for the day after Thanksgiving!
