1 (8 ounce) package
dry penne pasta
garlic, finely chopped
button mushrooms, sliced
salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste
1 1/2 teaspoons
chopped fresh parsley
grated Parmesan cheese
This is a great recipe - easy and tasty. Only change I made was to add 3/4 pound peeled/deveined cooked shrimp when the mushrooms were almost done. My picky husband gobbled it down and came back for more. I'll be making it again soon. Thanks
This was just okay. From all the good reviews I was expecting more. I thought it was bland.
Perfect. As is so often the case, simple dishes like this are the best! I used a specialty pasta rather than penne, but made no changes or substitutions, just eyeballed ingredients to taste. Freshly grated Parmesan is a must, as it provides a ton of flavor. Growing up in an Italian family, I can say this is a very traditional way to serve pasta, and lends itself well to including any variety of vegetables.
I made this over the weekend, and served it with the "Italian Breaded Pork Chops" recipe from this site. My family loved it! I used baby bellas (as suggested by another reviewer), and added some chopped fresh basil and spinach as well. In addition, I added a little evaporated skim milk to make a bit of a creamy sauce (without having to feel too guilty about the calories). Very good - will make again!
We really liked this. I doubled the recipe for company and added more garlic than called for (LOVE it). I also cut up boneless chicken breasts and cooked them in olive oil to add to the pasta. I also used grated and lots of shredded parmesan cheese to top it off.
this was was so good! loved it! I used the red pepper flake to kick it up. served it with fried tofu, sprinkled with mrs. dash no salt marinade and a little Lawrys fried it in olive oil and it was to die for. My hubby really loved it! thanks for sharing!
I made this last night for dinner and my husband and kids loved it, even the picky five year old. The only thing I changed was the type of pasta- I used cheese tortellini instead of the penne pasta, and it was still great! Very easy and tasty!
Thanks for the great recipe. Did everything but add the canned tomatoes and whipping cream. I used the easy alfredo sauce recipe from this site and combined the sauteed veggies. YUM!
