Was excited to find this recipe because it did not use cream of something soup.Followed recipe exactly first time I made this. Was a very good base recipe, just not a lot of flavor. Second time I made this, tweaked as follows according to what I had on hand at home, and advice from other reviews: used quartered grape tomatoes instead of mushrooms, sauteed with onions, garlic, and celery with kosher salt and ground peppercorns to taste. Removed to bowl. In saute pan, used 1.5 cups skim milk with 1/2 cup of chicken broth for roux. Added celery seed, pepper, pinch of cayenne pepper, and salt to roux-along with half of the cheddar cheese. Mixed everything together in saute pan. Used 1/2 panko crumbs and 1/2 grated parmesan cheese with melted butter over casserole, then sprinkled with 1/4 c cheddar cheese (3/4 cup cheddar used in total for recipe). placed saute pan in oven and baked as directed. Very tasty.
