"This was very good. I did make a few changes...after melting the butter I added 1 small chopped onion and cooked until softened, then added mushrooms and soups. I also increased past to about 8 oz. and used angel hair. Nice change of pace for dinner."

"My family loves this especially with homemade pasta and green chilies. The chilies give it some real flavor!!"
