This was great! Really tasty. I made it with your recipe for mushroom duxelle (155924) using chestnut mushrooms, my favorite recipe for salsa (http://myst.starforge.co.uk/index.cgi?block=3&op=view&id=26), and cheese sauce made with two parts double cream to one part shredded Lincolnshire poacher by weight. It needed some salt and pepper, but that was all. I thought it sounded like too much pasta at first, but the amounts were all spot-on. Next time we'll use double cream instead of sour cream for the thickness, though. Thanks so much for two great recipes, Happy Harry!
