Barley and Mushroom Casserole

This healthy barley and mushroom casserole is a weeknight favorite on a winter evening in place of a hearty soup or chili. It also goes great as a side for grilled steaks or brisket.

I usually use button mushrooms but you can use portobello or any assortment of wild mushrooms.

I add grated or shredded Parmesan cheese just before the casserole comes out of the oven.
