Ours turned out great. We added some Monterey Jack cheese with the parmesan and we've used broccoli or asparagus instead of the red pepper on occasion.

This was okay, but I suggest making some modifications. I only baked it for 25 minutes, and at 350. I skipped the parsley and added lots of garlic. It ends up a little dry still, but perhaps using more broth in the mixture could help.

I had typed in 4 ingredients to see what recipes would pop in and lo and behold this recipe came up. At first I was a bit leary because it wasn't a full 4 stars, but I love cooking with Sherry so I decided to give it a try. I followed the recipe exactly except I didn't have Jarlsburg cheese, I had a bunch of other cheeses that I mixed for the topping, including, 4 cheese italian, a little mozzarella and a touch of sharp cheddar. My husband and I both loved it. Someone had said it was a little bland but they had skipped the Port wine, it totally changes the flavor if you skimp on the Sherry. I will be making this again. Next time for guests. Thank you for posting this recipe.

Awesome. I made a few substitutions, but the basic recipe is wonderful.

Not very flavorful. I added quite a bit of garlic and pepper and still very bland and too dry. We threw the majority of it out. Will not make again.

Very easy and tasted great! I didn't have any Sherry so I used a dry white wine instead, and it was still yummy. I also used mozzerella instead of the Jarlsberg cheese because it's what I had on hand. Will try it with Jarlsberg next time to see if it made a difference. :)

I used milk instead of cream, broccolli instead of mushrooms. I added garlic, and garlic salt. I cut baking time to 25 min. It was delicious and low fat!
