Linguine With Wild Mushroom Alfredo

READY IN: 40mins
Recipe by Miss Annie

From Vegetarian Times, here is a new take on the classic Alfredo Sauce with 3 different kinds of mushrooms which makes a light but appetizing sauce. Proof that an appetizing sauce does not have to be a "heart attack on a plate". For a low sodium version, add the juice of 1 lemon to the sauce a few minutes before serving, and omit the salt.

This was a great recipe. I would suggest only 1 - 1 1/2 cups of skim milk though (as ours was a little much). Also, I added some bay scallops with the mushrooms and it was delicious! Easy and quick to make!
