    Linda's Busy Kitchen's Note:

    From: Maryanne Esposito - Ciao Italia------------ Mushrooms Sauce for pasta is a nice alternative to tomato sauce, and goes especially well with whole wheat fettucine. This is a rich dish, so a little goes a long way. This sauce makes enough for 1 lb. of pasta. For those of you that don't know Maryanne Esposito, let me introduce you to a marvelous cook, who cooks only "Authentic" Italian food, and it is incredible! I had the priviledge of meeting Maryanne at a woman's luncheon many years ago, and she has her own cooking show on Channel 11 in NH. She and her husband, who is a local doctor, live in the next town from where I used to live and work.

      This was a wonderful sauce, although I added a whole pound of sausage after reading the recipe wrong. It was really tasty! I used baby portabellos, oyster and button mushrooms in a combination. I would definitely make this again!

      This was very good. I make a creamy mushroom sauce for pasta all the time but never added sausage. Great idea. When I made it I didn't pay much attention to amounts and I added some dry herbs. But I will definately make it again.

      This is a lovely sauce and good for low carbers too if you leave out the pasta!! Nice blend of flavours. Thanks for posting, made for Zaar tag.
