Great easy supper. I used the reduced calorie cream of celery soup, real mushrooms (that I sauteed) and the tri-colored macaroni. It was very colorful. The only thing I would omit the next time is the parsley. I do not like the taste of it, so that is a personal preference. Thanks, for a recipe for comfort food without the guilt! Carole in Orlando
I couldn't find chunky tomato sauce so used regular and also used full-fat cheese. Otherwise, I followed the recipe, using whole wheat macaroni and twice the amount of mushrooms (I love mushrooms). I cooked the pasta, drained it & then used the same pot to cook the sauce. (A one pot dish! Yay!) Thanks for the recipe ladypit!
First off, I am not a big fan of soups added to dishes... but in this case, I loved it!!! This was real quick to put together and was real tasty!! Perfect for a cold night!! Thanks ladypit!! :) Made for Holiday Tag!
