  • “Eve, this was very good!!The only change I made was to leave out the fresh basil leaves, couldn’t find any, I did add a sprinkle of dried basil.I cut the recipe in half except for the garlic and spinach,left them as is, and used penne pasta.Thanks for sharing a good one!”

  • “I really enjoyed this recipe.I had most of the ingredients on hand, however the only substitution i made was to use Italian parsley instead of basil and used whole wheat linguini.I look forward to using this recipe again, Evie!Thanks so much for sharing it!”

  • “I like making this too but not always with the tomatoes and sun-dried tomatoes. It’s good either way but it depends on what I have in the kitchen. Shitakes are a little more flavorful if you can get them. The kind of pasta you use is also changeable. I usually use linguine or fettucine.”

  • “I have to admit I made changes due to what I had available.I used canned mushrooms and a can of diced tomatoes (drained).I tore some fresh basil and added it for flavor (I imagine the sun-dried tomatoes would add more flavor).I used angel hair pasta and it was absolutely fabulous!!Thanks for the springboard–I know the actual recipe is fantastic based on my not-so-fresh version!”

  • “very good, very simple and easy recipe. Made as directed except I had no cherry tomatoes. Wonderful light dinner. Thank you!!”

  • “This was very good – I’ll for sure make it again.The only thing I did differently was to use mushrooms from a jar and didn’t use the cherry tomatoes. Delicious!”
