SO HOW'D IT GO?

This was pretty good! It didn't call for as much seasoning as I'm used to, so I added some nutritional yeast and Bragg's. Otherwise, I didn't change anything, and it turned out quite well.
I would recommend cutting down on the filling amounts, though, since I ended up with at least three cups extra. Luckily, my boyfriend loved it, so he just turned it into a filling for a pot pie type deal by spreading it out in a square dish, covering it with biscuit dough, and topping with fresh rosemary and garlic.
Thanks for a good recipe!
