I absolutely loved this recipe!! My fiance is an EXTREMELY picky eater and he says this is favorite thing that I make. I don't think it makes great leftovers because it isn't as creamy, but with 2 or 3 people eating this, there are little to no leftovers. Thanks!

I used the chicken broth and thin linguini to make this to take to a potluck at work. I also didn't have canned mushrooms, so I sauteed about 8 ounces of fresh mushrooms (sliced) to add to the mixture. Since the recipe calls for baking for half an hour, I cooked the linguini about one minute less than "al dente" before adding it to the casserole. I barely had a chance to taste this, as it was literally "scarfed" up by my coworkers. When I told them they had to rate this recipe from 1 to 5, most of them said "5+". (We work for the government, the + means not enough options in original ratings.) Thank your coworker for a great recipe, Tara... next time I'm taking my share out before I bring it!! :o)
