Recipe by Happy Hippie
Made this tonight for the family and it was all thumbs up around the table. Very good, quick and easy to make and flavorful. This is a "Taste of Home Recipe." I'm going to write it exactly as written in the magazine, although I did make some minor changes that I will add here: Instead of spaghetti, I used Angel Hair Pasta, which is what we prefer in a dish like this. I used a sweet red pepper that was not roasted although I did chop and saute it along with the chopped onion, mushrooms and garlic. Garlic was not a listed ingredient in the original recipe, but I add it to almost everything. The recipe did not call for sauteeing the vegetables, but I usually do because I prefer to be certain that they are tender, not crisp to the bite. I'm not fond of biting into raw/crisp onions and peppers. I also feel that flavors blend better when sauteed together. I used a cheddar/jack cheese blend rather than sharp cheddar and Swiss cheeses only because it's what I had on hand. I'm sure that the this recipe would be wonderful as written, but I guarantee it's great with my changes as well. Enjoy!
