Mmm one of my favorite convenience meals in college was pasta with un-diluted cream of mushroom soup from the can as the sauce. It probably sounds gross but it was actually quite tasty. This is like a grown-up version of that for me that is much more healthy and flavorful.

Bridgett 19/9/10 21:18

I was just looking at a mushroom sauce for pasta just a little while ago then I see your post! This means I have to give this one a try. I am a fan of anything with mushrooms so this will be fabulous.
