So, It was just my son and I for dinner tonight. One of those throw something together deals...lol! My son is the least pickiest of my family, so I thought I would try something new on him. Well, his first bite, he said " you can make this again anytime mom! "..I was tickled pink...lol!!

It is delicious! I just served it with some peas. Was quite filling.

4Add soups and shredded cheese; stir to mix thoroughly.

Pour mixture into greased casserole dish.

Bake 25-30 minutes or until casserole bubbles in the center.

Remove from oven and sprinkle additional cheese on top, if desired...I didn't. Bake for an additional 5 to 10 minutes. Roughly 40 minutes in all.

5I think you could substitute just about anything in this dish for the mushrooms; if not a fan...it just had an awesome flavor. Make sure you use a flavorful sausage...as I think that is what made the dish wonderful!....Enjoy!
