 NOTES : This recipe is pretty flexible, you could use fusilli or penne instead 
 of rigatoni, substiute cream of chicken, or onion or broccol for the
 mushroom soup.  Switch the green beans to peas, or steamed broccoli, or zucchin
 i (maybe) - I don't recommend corn in this one.
 As for the cheese, I think cheddar, swiss, colby, or parmesan would all work we
 ll too !
