"Portobello mushrooms are a really good meat substitute, especially when they are grilled. If possible, use fresh herbs in this recipe."

This was fantastic. As a previous reviewer suggested, I doubled the sauce ingredients (except the herbs). I doubled the garlic (I'm a garlic fan) and sauteed it in 2 teaspoons olive oil. I lightly seasoned the mushroom caps with salt/pepper before broiling. Lastly I added 1/4 freshly grated Romano cheese right before serving. Next time I'll probably use six mushroom caps.
I'm not sure how the 'sauce' as written could possibly serve 8 - increase the liquid and herbs for sure if you intend to serve that many!(that's why I gave it 3 stars). I just made 2 servings and kept all the measurements as written (except the EVOO - cut that in half to save fat) and next time I will probably use a bit more. So the sauce as written is more likely to serve 2. I also used dried herbs, and I will try fresh next time, because I think it will be better. Used Balsamic vinegar because I like the taste better. Topped with parm. Don't forget the salt and pepper either - it needs it. Overall, not bad and I will keep playing with it until it suits my taste.
This was very good and a healthy change from heavy pasta sauces. Also, very quick to put together for a last minute meal. Thanks, Maryanne!
The flavor for this recipe was great! However I did not have enough liquid for the sauce. But I just added a little more parmesan cheese and ate it anyway. If I had to do over, I would double the ingredients for the sauce.
The flavors of this dish were simple and fresh. I made some changes though as some of the other reviews recommended. I used whole wheat linguini, 6 mushroom caps, 4 garlic cloves, 1/4 c. basil and 4T of olive oil. I also grated fresh parmesan cheese over each serving. Yum! I made this three times in two weeks - easy to make and reheats excellent in the microwave.
As is the recipe needs help. There is not enough liquid as many people have already stated. I doubled the liquid, tripled the garlic, and added parmesan (also like many others). As a base it is decent, but the recipe needs significant tweaking to be good.
I changed recipes quantity for 2, there was enough sauce to go, instead of broiling I used a frying pan, and added the souce at the end, It was fantastic.
This was pretty good, very healthy. I'd likely add more of the mushrooms next time, or even a little braise beef of some sort. Served it as a meal with a dinner salad and everyone did get their fill.
