    Manami's Note:

    This is a recipe which we have used for those who do not eat meat here at the home. I found this on the Barilla web site. It is really very good and creamy.

      Scrumptious! Would have been five stars but I had to improvise where direction was lacking. It says to add milk but milk isn't in the ingredient list, so as I was ready to pour, I suddenly had to figure out how much--I did it gradually and ended up using 1 1/2 cups of whole milk, which kept it fairly thick after I added the cheese. The cheese was the other sticking point (pun intended). I couldn't get it to melt, so I had to turn it back on and cook it for another ten minutes or so, and even then there were a few lumps, but that was fine. I ended up using only about half the pasta but we like strong and cheesy, so we preferred a more generous coating of sauce. I used fresh chives from our garden and it was the perfect accent. Plain ole white button mushrooms worked perfectly, but I'd like to try it with an assortment of cremini, porcini, chanterelle, etc. Outstanding recipe now that I've figured out the kinks.
