Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Preheat oven to 375 degrees F (190 degrees C). Spray a 9-inch pie plate with non-fat cooking spray.

  • Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a large skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms, and onions, stirring occasionally, until liquid from the mushrooms has cooked down, about 10 minutes. Stir in lemon juice and thyme and simmer 2 minutes.

  • Melt 3 tablespoons butter in a separate saucepan. Whisk in flour and stir constantly for about 1 minute. Gradually add the Swanson® Chicken Broth, Marsala, and half-and-half, whisking until sauce is smooth and thickened, about 3 minutes. The sauce should be very thick. Season to taste with salt and pepper.

  • Transfer the mushroom mixture to the sauce broth/Marsala mixture; stir well.

  • Roll out one sheet of puff pastry to fit the pie plate. Press evenly into the bottom and sides of the pie plate; trim the excess pastry. Spoon the mushroom mixture into the pastry shell.

  • Roll out the second sheet of puff pastry, and place on top. Trim excess, and crimp the edge to seal. Cut a few slits in the top for steam to escape. Brush the top of the pie with the beaten egg.

  • Bake in the preheated oven until golden brown and mushroom mixture is bubbly, about 40 minutes. Allow the pie to cool slightly before serving.

Cook's Note:

You can substitute white button mushrooms for the baby bellas, and whole milk for the half-and-half. When you're sautéing the mushrooms, go ahead, and start on your roux/sauce. This will save you some time.

This was outstanding and not difficult to make. I thought before I put it in the oven that it was going to look a mess because I used a decorative pie dish that was slightly deeper than a regular 9 pie plate and had problems fitting the pastry into the dish. However when I took it out of the oven it was magnificent. The puff pastry had indeed puffed and covered up my clumsy handling. It tasted delicious too. Can t wait to make it again. Read More

Mushrooms are my favorite food so I decided to try this recipe. This is a yummy meal for sure. I really liked it and so did everyone else. My boyfriend said he was going to go "brag" about the yummy dinner he had last night because he liked it so much. So if he likes it you should too!! Read More

This recipe is fabulous! It is easy to make and just about fool proof. I made it as is but I added leftover grilled chicken to make it a complete meal. I will definitely make it again. Read More

I picked up some baby bellas recently and wasn't sure what I was going to do with them - so happy I came across this recipe - delicious and pretty easy too. I keep going back for another sliver :) I followed the recipe pretty much and just followed advice to salt & pepper at each step tasting the parts as I made them. Also didnt cook all the liquid out of the mushrooms...kept just a bit...and used a little extra marsala - for a less 'firm' filling. It was great. Also - another reviewer mentioned adding a drizzle of honey. I did not add it in the pie but was curious to taste with my slice. HEAVEN. I think I will give the interior a drizzle next time before adding the top pastry. Addictively delish - Thanks for the recipe! Read More

Nice easy recipe. I liked it but it didn t bowl me over. My guests however loved it. I thought the liquid in the filling was a little too thick for my liking (more gelatinous than gravy-ish) so I would add a bit more of the chicken broth next time. I also thought it could use more spices. It baked up beautifully and in exactly the time specified. I will make it again. Read More

Delicious recipe. Tastes better with good quality marsala wine.. The second time I made it I added 2 cloves of garlic to the sauce step and increased marsala by an additional 1/4 cup. I also cut flour down using 1 less tbsp to decrease the thickness of the sauce a little. Be sure to generously salt and pepper at each step. Husband LOVED it! Btw use these pointers as the first time I made it exactly per the recipe it was good but was bland and lacked the gourmet flare it deserves!! Read More

Very nice recipe. Modified it a bit. Next time I make this dish I will not reduce the mushroom onion shallot mixture as much so the filling is a bit more "juicy". 1. I made a pie crust instead of using the pastry. 2. Followed another reviewers suggestions and added two cloves of finely minced garlic and increased the marsala by 1/4 cup. 3. Sauteed the minced garlic in butter for the roux. Then continued with the regular recipe. 4. Used a whole small minced onion. 5. Used a whole small minced shallot. 6. 1 1/2 tbl of fresh minced thyme 7. Used 2 lb of 3 different fresh mushrooms. 8. Used heavy cream instead of half & half. Read More

I added a little drizzle of honey before placing the top layer on. Honey with Marsala is great! (cooking wine version anyway). And maybe a little more Marsala than the recipe says:-) Read More
