This was a delicious and simple recipe to follow...although I must say that it was a bit bland as written. I tossed the pasta with the mushroom mixture and then added LOTS more balsamic and a bit more oil and salt before serving. With the added moisture, the dish was delish! I will make this again.

Excellent recipe. At first I wasn't sure but with each fork full I became more and more addicted ... I will definitely do this one again. Thanks for a great addition to my cookbook.
