A note about serious food allergies

This isn't your grandma's pasta bake. Sure, it has the warmth, and maybe even the love of Grandma's (that's an ingredient only you can provide). But does Grandma add rich marsala wine, umami-packed mushrooms, and not one but two cheeses? Yeah, she loves you, but does she love you this much? (Yeah, she does. Call your grandma!)
