Well, Aroostook, you really caught my eye with this one! I am a mushroom enthusiast in a very big way! I was alone for the evening so cut the recipe in half and dined very high all by myself! : )Wonderful linguini! I did use fresh basil and parsley from my garden and added a bit of salt to my taste. I would highly recommend this to any other mushroom lover! Thanks, Barb! Next time my mushroom-hater is out of town, I will be having this one again ; )

Delicious. Very garlicky, so be sure you're a garlic lover before making it!

A real keeper! The flavor was wonderful. We are big garlic fans here, so that fit the bill. Simple to make, easy directions. We will definitely have this one again.
