Made for PAC Fall '09. Turned out pretty good! I made a few changes - first, didn't have penne so I just used ww spagetti. Next, boyfriend hates mushrooms with a passion, so instead of mushrooms, I put zucchini, and instead of cream of mush soup, I used cream of celery. And I added a clove of garlic. I couldn't help myself. Delicious!!
