Pasta with Garlic Oil

My family is Italian, and this is one of our old faves with plenty of garlic, mushrooms and herbs. To help the sauce adhere, don’t rinse the pasta in water after you drain it. —Pamela Vittori, Chicago Heights, Illinois

    I will try this again but see if I can't alter the seasons a bit to spice it up a bit more for my family.

    SO Good! The only think I changed was I used fresh sliced mushrooms rather than canned. Will DEFINITELY make this again!
