From the Gooseberry Homestyle Family Favorites, this recipe is pretty good and makes a lot!  With just me and my husband, we were eating leftovers for days.  They reheated well but my husband and I found this recipe to taste something like a tuna helper dish.

So it’s not high on our list to make again.  But if it sounds like something you’d like to try I’ll share my notes.

I did not use the actual mushrooms, hence why I marked it as optional.  But I did use the cream of mushroom soup.  As someone who steers clear of mushrooms when I can, I will compromise with the cream of mushroom soup and I don’t find it to be too mushroomy.  But perhaps that’s what lended to the flavoring we didn’t like?  If I did it over again I’d use cream of chicken soup instead and see how that tasted.  I’ve found cream of chicken soup to be a great substitute for when I’m picky about cream of mushroom.

That’s all the notes I have on the dish.  But as a side I do recommend a tossed salad and some Garlic Butter Rolls.  The rolls are great for helping to mop up the sauce!
