Oh, yum! I made this for dinner last night and we loved it. Changes I made were to use Spaghetti Rigate, 100g of baby spinach leaves which I added right before the tomato sauce, Masterfoods All Purpose Seasoning, extra parmesan, and not having any fennel seeds I had to leave them out. Thank you for a great recipe I will surely make again.

Really great, easy, cheap vegetarian recipe! DH liked a lot, 2 y/o DD loved, I enjoyed very much :) Omitted the onions because of DH, sauteed the mushrooms until fully cooked before adding garlic and spinach and added an extra clove or garlic. I used bottled pasta sauce (Classico Spinach and Cheese) for speed and ease. Next time I will probably try adding a little sherry to the mushrooms when they're sauteeing. Made homeade garlic bread (hamburger buns toasted with butter, garlic and parm) and salads. An A meal :) Thanks, for the love of veggies!

I made this tonight and it was very good, but missing something. Maybe more salt... not sure. I added a little extra tomato sauce and diced tomatoes (an extra ounce or two of each) and added 1 more tablespoon of cream cheese. I also omitted the fennel seeds and spike seasoning. I don't think those are the two things that made it taste "off," although maybe the salt in the Spike would have made a difference. I'll definitely be making this again and will buy some Spike (and update my review when I do). I also used fresh spinach instead of frozen, white onion instead of red, and white mushrooms instead of portabella. One tip: add the garlic during the last minute of the onion cooking or it will burn. Overall, I liked it and will add it to my cookbook for a future dinner. Thanks for sharing!

This was very good, even though I tried my hardest to goof it up :)! I halved the recipe but forgot to halve the cream cheese, parmesan, and spices. Duh! BUT it tasted great nonetheless, and I can't wait to make it again. Made for PAC Spring 2008.

This was very good. My husband and I really liked the creaminess of the sauce, due to the cream cheese. I did add some regular mushrooms along with the portabellas, as I had some that needed to be eaten. I also used fresh spinach instead of frozen. Made for PAC Fall '07. :)
