Spicy, delicious, and decadent! DH and I had this for dinner last night and halved the recipe for just the two of us with great results. We used a combination of wild mushrooms (oyster, shiitake, cremini), which were very tasty in the dish. The garlic and green onion proportions were perfect. I might even scale back on the cayenne next time (did I just say that???). I like my dishes pretty spicy and I found this to be a little hot. I know from experience, however, that I will never be disappointed by bland food in one of your recipes, cookiedog! Thanks for the great recipe. We will be making this again! Made for ZWT4.

Spicy and Fantastic, I made 2 weeks ago and my wife wants it again this week. I used mostacolli noodles instead and we love spicy so I dumped a little extra cayenne pepper with red pepper flakes.... EXCELLENT...QUICK AND EASY- 4/9/14-Another Mix on this awesome recipe to make it a little different and you can say it is something else-keep the family interested- I follow the recipe exactly -but I add fry 1/2 chopped red bell pepper in with the mushrooms and then when you get close to the end I throw in two jars of "Classico-Roasted Red Pepper Alfredo Sauce 15 oz.- and omit the pint of heavy whipping cream. Oh my gosh- WE can eat everything between 3 adults.
