Thanks to earlier reviews, I used one cup of cut scallions (rather than a yellow or white onion), and a red pepper (rather than a green one). I also used one can cream of mushroom soup and one can cream of celery soup. I used 2 tblsp. olive oil and 1 tbsp. butter to sautee the mushrooms, onion, and pepper in, and it was plenty (you don't need all that butter). The dish was coming along just great until I added the chicken broth. It diluted the flavors to the point where I had to add more soup! Definitely avoid adding liquid to this dish. The soups will carry it just fine. I also used low fat cheddar cheese and about 1/4 c. dry sherry.
Next time I make this, I'll probably make my own "soups" to bring the calorie, fat, and sodium counts down. The celery adds a nice flavor though, so if you stay with the recipe as it is (sans liquid) I recommend replacing one can of the mushroom soup with a can of celery soup. The scallions and red pepper also add a unique touch that I prefer over onions and green pepper.
This recipe points you in a good direction, but it needs refining to make it "zing".
