  • 1 package (16 ounces) sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 3 large carrots, halved and sliced
  • 1/3 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 cups milk
  • 14 ounces Grand Cru Surchoix cheese, shredded and divided (3 1/2 cups)
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 3 cups fresh baby spinach
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 sheet frozen puff pastry, thawed

Instructions

2. Melt butter in a 12-inch ovenproof or cast-iron skillet over medium heat. Add mushrooms and carrots; cook and stir for 6-8 minutes or until crisp-tender.
3. Reduce heat to medium-low. Stir in flour until light brown. Gradually stir in milk. Bring to a boil; cook and stir for 2 minutes or until thickened.
