Pasta with Creamy Mushroom Sauce

Once again, a recipe with creamy sauce & not many calories?  Im all about it!  I started off my New Years Day with an excellent workout.  I figured it would be best to back that up with a healthy & tasty lunch.  I had a small serving of pretzel sticks right along with this & it was the perfect combination.

Happy 2013, guys!
