WOW!! That sounds fantastic. I love fresh pasta, fresh spinach and mushrooms.

The mushrooms were surely the star! Even as delicate a flavor as the oysters have, it came through! A little fresh thyme, garlic, white wine and pasta cooking liquid completed the sauce. Yum. Sometimes the simplist ingredients just hit it off.

Ever try any cream in the sauce?

I made "Maid Rite's" tonight. I had never had them and have wanted to try them since "Roseann" made them famous. I enjoyed them, but I don't see what all the hype is about. I am usually disappointed with anything that gets a lot of hype. I will probably turn the rest of the meat into something else, maybe taco meat or sloppy joes.

What's a "Maid Rite"?

I hear ya, Patty. We live in the home of the Maid Rites. I had them once, 20 years or so ago, and found them REALLY salty, and did not see what all the fuss was about. I prefer my own sloppy joes.

What are they?

I may have made them wrong. LOL

It's "loose meat on a bun". We have a number of franchises in Iowa. Ketchup, pickle, mustard, bun. Lots of dried minced onion in the filling, and apparently, lots of salt.

The term "loose meat" doesn't sound appealing. What kind of meat? And just dried onion is in it? I think I will stick to sloppy joe's/whimpys.

Thank you for replying.

My version of turkey tetrazini. I've lived in IL for 10 years + now and have never seen loose meat, only heard about it watching Roseanne. One day .....
