This was a wonderful recipe. Easy and fast. Will definitely make it again, but it was a bit too much oregano. I'll just cut that back from now on. Thanks!

Very nice vegearian bolognaise. I didn't have the water problem but I left it simmering quietly on the stove for a lot longer. Easy and yummy.

Very healthy, fast and easy recipe. I think the mushrooms watered things down a bit too much, I might consider cooking them quite a bit longer. Needed quite a bit of extra seasoning and cheese to give it some taste, but can't argue that it is healthy and low fat!
