      This was really good! I doubled the recipe and subbed 1 head of cauliflower for the mushrooms (My husband hates them, which is a bummer for me, because I bet this is AMAZING with them!). I also used ground venison instead of ground beef and it was so good!

      This is seriously a great recipe. I ate this for dinner and lunch the day after and it was even better the next day. So easy too, going to make again!
