    Palmtreesbend's Note:

    This is a wonderful, light sauce served over your choice of pasta. Not your traditional tomato sauce but a totally different flavor that your family will love. My husband (and myself quite frankly) were concerned about the tomato soup but you don't even know that is what was used. It doubles very well.

      Excellent! This is so delicious and yet you don't taste the tomato soup. I cut the recipe in half and instead of the 1% milk I used fat free half and half. That's the only changes I made. This is a keeper and so easy to prepare. Thanks for posting. Made for Fall PAC 2009 :)

      This is a great recipe! I had been looking and looking for this recipe because it's my fav. Italian restaurant side dish. This isn't exactly like the restaurant but close enough! I don't put in the mushrooms because the hubby doesn't like them but other than that I follow it to a T. Thanks for posting this!!
