Hubby announced he felt like some "creamy pasta" for dinner. I knew exactly what kind he wanted and cringed. The yummy creamy pasta that he seemed to only get in a restaurant. I have tried numerous times to recreate it only to fail. I announced last night that I would give it "one last shot" and finally found a recipe he LOVED! omg Thankyou for posting this! I have to admit I added a little more cream (and a tiny bit more cornflour because of the extra cream) (probably more for my sake thank his as I could just eat the sauce easily on it's own hehe) I forgot to add the parsley but it was still fantastic. When I was chopping and weighing the mushrooms I was thinking to myself that it was a lot, but they shrunk down when they were cooked and ended up being the perfect amount. I also used short bacon too as hubby's not a big rind fan. Thankyou again for posting this. FANTASTIC!

The flavour of this dish was exceptional. I used ham instead of bacon and flat mushrooms. I also doubled the parmesan cheese for added preferred taste. I found the sauce not as thick as other recipes but I actually enjoyed the thinness of the sauce on this occasion. Thanks Chickee.

I made this exactly as stated and used fettuccine. This had a nice flavour, but there was way too much pasta for the amount of sauce. Next time I think I'll also leave out the cornflour, as it made the pasta congeal as it cooled. Thanks Chickee!

This was just terrific! I used whole wheat spaghetti pasta as I didn't have any fettucine, but it worked great anyway, as promised. The only other thing I changed, was to use chopped portabella mushrooms, and it did make the sauce a funny colour because of it. No matter, the taste was outstanding and we loved every bite! :) Thanks for posting.

This was a fantastic easy recipe, exceptional taste will make again for sure, I left out the parsley, added mozarella cheese instead on parmesan and added alittle extra garlic. Well done Chickee!!!

Thanks for posting this Chickee. I was surprised to notice that it was the only one on Zaar, maybe it's an Aussie recipe. Anyway I made it for lunch today with a few changes to reduce the fat content and it was great. I omitted the butter, used olive oil spray, used short cut bacon and subbed skim evaporated milk for the cream. Next time I will use a little more cornflour as it was a little thinner than if I'd used cream. I didn't feel as guilty eating this as I do when I have it at an Italian restaurant and I know I will make it again and again. It was well worth the 5 stars with my changes - I guess that makes it worth a whole lot more if made with butter and cream.
