Fettuccine with Mushrooms & Basil

I love mushrooms.  The few days before I left for vacation & after I got back from vacation I ate mostly roasted garlic veggies & Im pretty sure I annhilated 2 containers of mushrooms.  This is actually a little higher in calories than I prefer in one meal but, come on.  It has mushrooms.
