Garlic bread, tossed green salad and a glass of white zinfandel make for a nice dinner for two. Enjoy! From Taste of Home Magazine.

Made this for dinner tonight. I used a white merlot that I had opened in the fridge for the wine, and reduced fat cream cheese. I'll also admit that I didn't measure the mushrooms and probably had more than called for but no one complained. Other than that, I followed the recipe to a T. It was enjoyed by everyone. Even DD who said "I don't want sauce on my fettuccine. I don't like onions or cooked tomatoes" asked if there was enough for her once she tried it.
Thanks for a very enjoyable meal!
