This recipe is fabuloso! Thanks to the other reviewers who found this not creamy enough, I substituted heavy cream for the milk. It was perfectly thick and very creamy! This is one of my top 5 pasta sauce recipes now!

I thought the dish was flavorful- but the sauce wasn't as creamy as I would have preferred. My husband was very impressed with the dish.

This is a great recipe. It does need more seasoning. I added salt, extra pesto and extra cream cheese and only used white and portabello mushrooms. I also added a tablespoon of garlic cream cheese. It's even better reheated the next day--it's creamier.

Very good, simple recipe. Based on comments that it was bland, I chopped up some sun-dried tomatoes and added them- definately a good addition. I even used some of the juice in place of the oil for sauteing the mushrooms/ garlic. Liked the flavors a lot, thanks

Great recipe -- I love it because it's lower fat than some of the creamy pasta recipes. I eyeballed everything, and added an extra spoonful of cream cheese and one of pesto too. I also added more cloves of minced garlic & some red pepper while I cooked the mushrooms.

I thought this was excellent! I used 1/2 cup of milk and 1/2 cup of half and half to make it a little creamier. I also added a pinch of Herbes de Provence because my jarred pesto didn't have quite enough oomph. Even though it was quick and easy, it makes for a very elegant meal. Thanks for sharing!

I made the recipe as written. Very quick, easy and tasty. I'll make it again. Thanks.
