You want spaghetti but you’re not feeling the tomato-based sauce? Or let’s just say you don’t have any in stock. Conveniently though you have a can of cream of mushroom soup, a few button mushrooms, and while you’re at it why not throw in a few capers too. Yes, that totally happened in my kitchen, Hah!
