Cook's Notes

Shiitakes have tough inedible stems that should be removed. For white mushrooms (called button when small), cremini, and portobellos, trim the spongy tip; the rest is edible.

    I added garlic and fresh thyme to the veggies and substituted black pepper Boursin for the goat cheese, which my husband will not eat. I don't understand cooking the onion separately or covering the pans. If I make this again I will saute the onions, then add mushrooms and garlic and cook until the mushrooms are browned, then add the spinach and thyme and stir until the spinach collapses.

    Vegan Tip: Although it contains hydrogenated oils, including palm, 'Pepperidge Farm' puff pastry is vegan! Substitute vegan cream cheese or ricotta for the goat cheese (I prefer 'Kite Hill' brand!) Or, 'Follow Your Heart' Parmesan cheese is a great choice, too!

    I used phyllo puffed pastry instead, and the 14 oz container was a bit too much dough. The topping was delicious, but if you plan to use phyllo pastry instead, you can probably get away with 1/4-1/2 the 14 oz package. I tried this on two dinner guests, and they liked the recipe (both went back for seconds) but there was a lot of left over dough on plates.

    Oh wow was this good. I used the whole package of goat cheese (4 oz.) because I love the stuff. That was the only change I made-- the rest was perfect for my tastes. One thing: The puff pastry I bought was in 2 squares and I didn't roll them out any more than they were, so I had 2 little tarts :) So no need to waste your time with flour and a rolling pin! Definitely going to make again.

    Very delicious! Don't waste this on picky children who wont eat goat cheese. Make it for guests and just tell the children they miss out. Maybe they will learn to eat some good things. My friends loved this.

    Very delicious. I added green peas and some parsley and it was a definite do again. I might try with sun-dried tomatoes next time.

    I used some gruyere with sharp cheddar. It was out of this world.

    For kids, I think that fresh mozzarella would be an acceptable alternative to the goat cheese. I wouldn't use the packaged kind though. I don't think that the texture would work very well.

    I'm also wondering what other cheese other than goat or feta would work. My kids won't eat either of those cheeses. Thanks.
