Barley and Mushroom Casserole, Member DawnClo

My husband and I both thought this was delicious. I've never cooked much with barley before, but wanted to add more grains to our diet. I made the recipe as is, but added a minced clove of garlic, a teaspoon of thyme, two bay leaves and a tablespoon of parsley. I added a sprinkle of parmasean cheese on top after it baked. I would definately make again!
