    MissTiff16's Note:

    This is one of my personal FAVS!! Penne tossed in a mascarpone cream sauce with cremini mushrooms, asparagus, sun-dried tomatoes and walnuts. From Cafe Lucci :O) If you plan on trying this don't skimp on those ingredients -- The flavors from the mushrooms and tomatoes blend so wonderfully!! When you salt and pepper to taste, the sauce thins out real well so test it out after mixing it with the pasta ;O) This recipe says it's for 2 -- I put 2-4 because the portions are huge!!! Enjoy!
