Have you made the Heart-Healthy Commitment? Rod Black's recipe for success (NC) - High cholesterol is one of the most common conditions affecting Canadians. In fact, almost half of all adult Canadians (48 per cent of men and 43 per cent of women) have unhealthy cholesterol levels, which can lead to heart disease or stroke. Yet, according to an Ipsos-Reid survey*, more than one-third of respondents do not understand that even slightly high cholesterol levels can be dangerous.
Cook pasta according to directions (to al dente, or firm pasta texture).
Melt margarine in a large saucepan over medium heat. Add the mushrooms, stir until lightly browned.
Add soup, milk and parmesan cheese. Whisk until the sauce is smooth, about 2 to 3 minutes.
Reduce the heat to medium-low; stir in the salad dressing, sour cream, basil and nutmeg.
When the noodles are cooked, drain well and immediately toss with the sauce to evenly coat.
Sprinkle with parsley.

For many Canadians, a healthy diet and regular exercise are not enough to reach target cholesterol levels. Ask your doctor about your target, and then take action to reach it.
