Tagliarine (Pronounced "talarini")

“I inherited this recipe from my mother-in-law before she passed away. I can't remember which of her old recipe books I copied it out of, but I'm sure glad I did. It is absolutely delish and makes enough to feed approx 10 people in two separate batches. You can eat one batch and freeze the second batch. It freezes well for up to 3 months, but I wouldn't leave it in the freezer for more than 2 months. Since I added the mushrooms to this recipe (yum) I believe it to be unique from any other Tagliarini recipe I have ever come across.”
