Made this for Melave Malka was amazing. I didn’t have mushrooms or mushroom consommé in the house; I subbed the consommé for salt, spices(pepper, garlic, onion), & flour; also added 2 cubes frozen garlic & 1 parsley for extra taste. Was amazing!!!

What type of cheese? What type of shredded cheese? I used mozzarella and the sauce wasn’t smooth…

Missing Ingredient Is it missing the Mushrooms from ingredients?

Fettuccine historically has mushrooms, but they are optional. The stylist put them in the picture, but they are not in the recipe. That said, I would sautée some and add to sauces. Mushrooms definitely add depth of flavor without adding many calories.
Which is great since this is a lite recipe.

Is there anyway to make this ahead of time? For instance, can l prepare the pasta and sauce before and combine before serving? Can anything be made in advance and frozen?

Yes, you can definitely make in advance and combine before serving. You should be able to freeze the sauce, no problem.
