Penne with Roasted Marsala Mushrooms

Air, water and pasta substance for life...for my kids at least.  Another harried night.  No time to shop.  Empty refrigerator and hungry brood.  What to do!  I peered at my hundreds of cookbooks and grabbed Food & Wine Magazine's Quick from Scratch Pasta Cookbook.  FYI  Food & Wine magazine has fabulous recipes.  I highly recommend visiting their web site Food & Wine.
This recipe was a huge hit.  They fought over the bits left in the pot.  Next time I need to double the recipe.
