My DH made this for my birthday supper last night and we both thought it was great! It was fairly simple to make and even my DD who doesn't like mushrooms thought it was good. (except for the mushrooms )
Because the mushrooms that I bought on Friday were spoiled, we ended up with a mix of oyster and shitake mushrooms, but I think most any combination of mushrooms would work well for this. I'm looking forward to the leftovers for lunch!
Sounds like you had a nice bday dinner!
Is the recipe online somewhere? I don't get the CL magazine anymore.

Penne with Wild Mushrooms
Tender wild mushrooms such as oyster, hedgehog, or chanterelle are best for this dish, although cultivated oyster mushrooms are also suitable. Substitute fettuccine for penne, if you like. Garnish with fresh sage leaves.
1 tablespoon olive oil
1 teaspoon butter
3/4 cup thinly sliced leek (about 1 large)
2 teaspoons minced fresh sage
6 cups coarsely chopped wild or cultivated mushrooms (about 1 pound)
3/4 cup half-and-half
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon freshly ground black pepper
8 ounces uncooked penne (tube-shaped pasta)
Heat oil and butter in a large nonstick skillet over medium heat. Add leek to pan; cook 2 minutes or until tender, stirring occasionally. Stir in sage; cook 30 seconds, stirring occasionally. Add mushrooms; cook 10 minutes or until liquid evaporates, stirring occasionally. Add half-and-half; cook until liquid is reduced to 6 tablespoons (about 2 minutes). Stir in salt and pepper. Remove from heat; keep warm.
Cook pasta according to package directions, omitting salt and fat. Drain. Place in a large bowl. Add mushroom mixture to pasta; toss gently to coat.

Thanks for posting it Kay! It should be in the CL recipe database as well.
Thanks. I just got a large jar of assorted dried mushrooms from Costco.
This sounds good.
