I lightened it up a bit by using turkey smoked sausage and 2% milk. As suggested by others, I doubled the sauce ingredients (butter, milk, cornstarch and cheese) and was glad I did. I used fresh mushrooms instead of canned. I also replaced the peas with steamed brocolli florets because not many in my house care for peas. Put in a bit of Mrs. Dash regular. I also saved a bit of the pasta water to add while mixing the sauce and pasta. Honestly, I wasn't sure how all these ingredients would taste when combined, but it was hearty and delicious.
