Autumn mushrooms give this dish a hearty flavour. Substitute vegetable stock for the chicken stcok and this makes a perfect meal for that vegetarian girlfriend your son is bringing to Christmas dinner. The rest of the family will love it too.
Parmesan cheese is not truly vegetarian, as it contains animal rennet. To make this dish 100% vegetarian, omit the cheese or find a suitable vegetarian substitute made without animal rennet. In supermarkets look for the 'parmesan style hard cheeses' which are suitable for vegetarians.
Yum, yum, yum. I substituted baby bellas for the shitakes and it was so good. Tastes even better next day. Next time, i will bake the day before and reheat with a little more cream on top. - 23 Feb 2006 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I cut the recipe in half because I'm only cooking for two. I used dried shiitake mushrooms that I soaked in hot water for 30 mins, and fresh white mushrooms. I made exactly as written, except that I added a little butter after it was done. Very very good, will definitely make again. - 28 Sep 2010 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
Really good! Really, really, really good!!! I didn't follow the recipe exactly. I used less potatoes and didn't measure out anything except one cup of broth. Also, I didn't have any cream so I substituted it for a can of cream of mushroom soup. I basically just threw everything together here and it was fantastic!!! Everyone loved it. I tossed a bit of bread crumbs on top near the end to make it crispy. YUM!!! - 18 Apr 2011 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
