Pasta is like a chameleon. You can disguise it easily with the extras, you include in a recipe. You can add meat and make it a main course. Vegetables go for a main or side. It can be used as a salad and even as a dessert. In this case, I used it as a side but I would use it as a main with a salad made up of greens and tomatoes.
I had some mushrooms and scallions, I wanted to use and this became the disguise this pasta was going to wear. When, I searched for cheese, I came up with an unlikely choice, gouda. I love gouda and in my most humble opinion, I think you can add it to anything.
This is an easy meal to make and to eat so throw it together and sit down with the family and friends and enjoy it.
