Happy Semi-Vegan Saturday and Sunday!

Well, I've been busy offline falling backwards (not forwards like Casey) into the bay today (fully clothed) and pondering a sweet deal sans functional toilet. Currently watching The Stranger for the umpteenth time...

Noodle Casserole by ~vickangaroo

Brought to you by Wagga: this intriguing recipe that may help Casey gain a few pounds!

Semi-vegan Veggie Casserole

1 lb. fresh white mushrooms.
2 tablespoons butter.
1 8-oz.box frozen green peas, thawed.
1 can Cream of Celery soup.
3/4 cup milk.
1/2 teaspoon Worcestershire sauce
2 tablespoon grated Parmesan cheese.
Salt & pepper to taste.
1/2 cup crushed potato chips.

Wash & slice mushrooms. Saute in butter until tender.
Stir in peas & continue to cook for 2 minutes.
Meanwhile blend remaining ingredients in well-greased baking dish (except for potato chips), then combine mushrooms & peas. Sprinkle with potato chip crumbs. Bake 30 minutes @ 350 degrees.

Serves 4-6

Vegan Variation:
Substitute olive oil for butter, build a roux with 1 1/2 tablespoons of
cornstarch or
flour whilst sauteeing the mushies to build body, quench with 3/4 cup of
water
(or white wine!), and substitute tofu for cheese.

Variation kc
Use Vegan Variation, pour 1/2 of combined mixture in baking dish. Add layer of shrimp, beef , chicken, pork, crab legs or all of the above.. Cover with remaining mixture. Sprinkle with potato chip crumbs. Bake in eight ovens until the power is turned off.

Salt Lake City Variation:
Make Standard Variation, pour 1/2 of combined mixture in baking dish. Add layer of 2759 pieces of Koi ( A type of fish). Cover with remaining
mixture.
Sprinkle with potato chip crumbs.
Bake at room temperature until the housing market recovers.

Comments.:
This Friday Staff lunch was (as always) well received.
It tastes good or you will be fired!
Peas with Pearl Onions are a good alternative.
The dish turned out a little watery with a slightly gray color. A little flour or cornstarch during the sautee would be good, & be careful not to brown the mushrooms much. I did. I somewhat overdid the ground black pepper - hurt the color, I should try white pepper & a schosh of sugar. Next time I will experiment with olives, onions & peppers, and, of course, canned Tuna or Salmon.
