"It's a simple but delightful cream of mushroom sauce served over pasta. This can be used as a side dish or main dish. I came up with it while pregnant and it satisfied my cravings."

uncooked macaroni pasta
1 (10.75 ounce) can
condensed cream of mushroom soup
1/2 (10.75 ounce) can
1/2 (10.75 ounce) can
sliced fresh mushrooms
salt and pepper to taste
I make this too when I need a fast but yummy pasta meal for myself. I use spaghetti noodles, and while they cook, I mix a few tablespoons of the condensed soup with some water, chopped onions, garlic, S and P. Just top the spag with the sauce and some fresh parmesan.
I really wanted to this to be good, but it didn't quite make it. I added a clove of garlic and a stalk of celery, sliced thinly. The flavor wasn't bad, it's just that there wasn't much OF IT. Pretty bland, even with the garlic addition. I'm also not sure why it calls for water, as well as milk. I'd say pick one or the other because I ended up with mushroom a la soup. If I hadn't been so hungry I would have taken a moment to try to thicken it w/ cornstarch or something, but I was famished so I ate it as it. Also, I don't think I would make this with macaroni. Egg noodles might be a better choice, but maybe that's just me. Thanks :)
I made a variation of this dish using only half the water and no milk so the sauce would be thicker. I also added about two cups of frozen veggies, pepper to taste and little torn-up pieces of turkey ham because I had it on hand. It came out absolutely delicious this way and with the added veggies I felt I added some good vitamins.
My husband really liked the mushrooms in this. He also liked the parmesan cheese on top. This is his rating, since I didn't try the dish. I'm mushroom-ed out.
Much too watery. Why add water to this?
This was very quick and delicious... I did add a few seasonings to it and cut the milk/water ratio in half so it was more sauce like but other than that, great!
