This is a delicious recipe! Ended up making 6 of them, since that is what fit on my pan. But YUM! Going to try the purely vegetarian version next time. Served this with a giant salad and home-made oil-free dressing, and everyone was happy.

I can't say we absolutely loved these, since they were somewhat bland. I made them without the beef. Next time, I think I'll try making them without sautéing the onions and garlic (and maybe add extra), and only sautéing the mushrooms. They also took longer than 40 minutes to bake.
