Fettuccine with Mushrooms and Tomatoes

To perk up a plate of fettuccine, Phyllis Schmalz Eismann of Kansas City, Kansas gets saucy with mushrooms. “I can toss this dish together in 30 minutes on a busy weeknight. And it's elegant enough to serve as a vegetarian entree for guests.”

    I tried it and do not consider this a "quick" recipe to make on a weeknight. A lot of ingredients and labor-intensive for a blah meal.

    It was alright. Kind of bland.
