Fettuccine With Creamy Mushroom and Green Peppercorn Sauce

“In 'Pasta for all Seasons' by Robin Robertson. Bottled green peppercorns have a piquant bite, so adjust amount to taste. Mild white mushrooms are preferred b/c the more assertive flavor of wild mushrooms would compete with the flavor of the peppercorns.”
