Really good! I was worried that the blue cheese flavor might be too strong, but it was really nice (if you really love blue cheese, you may even want to add more). I added some fresh, chopped spinach leaves for color, and I didn't use the full amount of pasta (I like a lot of sauce). As noted by other reviewers, the sauce will seem too thin at first, but it thickens considerably if you let it sit for a few minutes after adding the pasta. Thanks for sharing!

We enjoyed this very much. I found the sauce to be quite watery at first but after sitting with the pasta in it it did thicken up. I think the pasta had time to take on some of the sauce. The mushrooms were really juicy, I cut them quite chunky. Next time I will definitely add more blue cheese to increase the flavour.

I used whole wheat pasta. I uped the garlic to 4 cloves. Thanks for this quick and easy recipe.
