Meaty mushrooms and a kickin’ hot cheese sauce take this simple pasta toss from drab to fab! My family loves that it tastes like a restaurant dish, but it’s made at home. —Veronica Callaghan, Glastonbury, Connecticut
"CAN YOU BELIEVE that a blend of vinegar and garlic can be strong but subtle, too? That's the best way to describe this recipe.
"I love garlic, so I use a lot of it in this recipe. Luckily, my family likes it, too! And just like my aunt, who had an extensive vegetable/herb garden, we use quite a few of our own homegrown vegetables for this medley. For some reason, they just make this dish taste so much better."
I made this satisfying side dish often when I was single. Now I prepare it for my family. By adding fresh mushrooms, onion, butter and a little pepper, you can easily dress up ordinary green beans.—Denise Albers, Freeburg, Illinois
My sister brought this recipe with her when she was visiting from California. We served it at a family get-together and everyone just loved it. We're often asked to bring it to potlucks. —Marcia Tiernan, Madrid, New York
