    Great dish! Because I had these on hand, I substituted 1 T of fresh thyme for 1 t of dried and :( a drained pkg of thawed spinach, and it was still great. The combo of onion, mushrooms, parmesan, thyme, garlic, & olive oil gave amazing flavor. With fresh spinach it'd be awesome! I'll make it again - 6/19/09

    It was good, I also added some sour cream. Unfortunately, my husband works the late shift. I made it early and ate it, it was delicious. Put it in the fridge and reheated it for him and there was no sauce left - I guess it was soaked up by the noodles and it just didn't taste as good. - 5/19/10

    SO EASY! Really quick to make and very filling. I used a variety of wild mushrooms which really increased the flavour as well as chestnut mushrooms. I added low fat mozzarella to my friend's portion, only a small amount, which she said made it even better. This will be a frequent!! - 5/14/12

    This was good especially because I made it with an empty fridge and cupboard. (need to get groceries) I added black beans, and sun-dried tomatoes. I also used frozen spinach and canned mushrooms. Fresh ingredients would make this even better and it is so easy to change up. - 3/8/11

    This recipe was so light and FRESH! I loved the combo of mushroom and garlic, onion and spinach. I added a grilled chicken breast and at the end, I removed everything from the pan and poured in about 1/4 cup of heavy cream and melted the parmesan in that for a sauce. - 3/8/10

    Just barely OK even after my modifications (added artichokes, way more mushrooms, cayenne pepper, ginger). First of all, the amounts of ingredients seemed totally weird. 6 oz of pasta? That's not even one cup of pasta and it's supposed to be 4 servings? Only 1 oz of mushrooms per serving? - 2/20/11

    This was good. It was bland. I added chicken as well, but it needed something. I also kept the pasta separate from the "sauce" in the fridge for leftovers and it reheated just fine! - 10/7/10

    Very good and easy. I added some pasta water to make the dish a little saucier, and substituted " hint of thyme" spice blend (from Spice Merchants). - 4/21/12

    It was delicious! Even my carnivorous husband enjoyed it! I used frozen chopped spinach because I was too lazy to slice the fresh tonight but next time I will go with the fresh even though the frozen was good! I will be making this a lot for our meatless meal! - 12/16/10

    It was good, but a little bland. I think some other reviewers had it right - adding chicken would make it great! - 3/2/11

    This was so delicious! I used whole wheat penne and added shrimp for some extra protein and this was a huge hit with me and my husband. My husband's only complaint was wanting more spinach, but he's a veggie-aholic so I don't think this is a bad reflection on the recipe. - 2/9/11

    I prepared the recipe as shown but added already cooked chicken, peas and cherry tomatoes and 2 tablespoons of sour cream before mixing the pasta with the other ingredients. Definately made it more filling and appealing although I agree with the others that it was rather bland. Had to add sea salt. - 11/10/10

    We added mozzarella instead, and sun dried tomatoes. Husband said he would have given 5/5 stars if it had more vegetables. - 6/18/10

  • Great recipe! Upped the pasta to 12oz and mushrooms to 8 oz. to feed 4 of us as a main meal. I also added some sea salt and about a tablespoon more of oil or it would've been too dry! - 11/5/13
