t. Spray large rectangular pan with pam[p]2. In a skillet over medium heat, brown the sausage for 4 to
6 minutes. Add mushrooms and saute until wilted, about 3 to 4 minutes. Season with black pepper. Remove from heat and cool slightly.[p][p]3. In a large mixing bowl, combine the cream cheese and ricotta cheese and mix thoroughly. Stir in the flour, baking powder and salt. Add the eggs, a little at a time, and mix until fully incorporated.

    Sounds wonderful and I will soon try it, BUT 2 cups of chopped chives? That sounds like an awful lot - the directions don't mention them either. [p]Tim
