I see the solution, but what's the logic?

Here's the blank:

And here's the bottleneck:

If you replace mushroom with Fusilli, clues 1 and 5 reduce to just two categories:
Yolanda plus \$1 is Capellini
Fusilli plus \$1 is Angie

With:
Angie not Yolanda
Fusilli not Capellini
Angie not Capellini
Yolanda not Capellini

I worked it out that this cannot happen:
Angie is \$9.99
Fusilli is \$8.99
Leaving Yolanda to be either:
Yolanda is \$7.99, but Capellini cannot be \$8.99 (already taken)
Yolanda is \$8.99, but Capellini cannot be \$9.99 (Angie cannot be Capellini)

So, Angie must be \$8.99, and she is, and everything falls into place.

BUT WHAT IS THE LOGIC beyond the bottleneck? I don't see it. How do I frame what's left into a logical statement?
