Fettuccine With Porcini Mushroom Sauce

“From Bon Appetit, Keep It Simple Cookbook. I really enjoyed this recipe, but felt that there was too much liquid. Next time I think I would start by reducing the chicken stock by 1/2 cup and add as needed during cooking. I also really liked this recipe because you don't need to rehydrate the porcini mushrooms before cooking.”
