Eve, this was very good!! The only change I made was to leave out the fresh basil leaves, couldn't find any, I did add a sprinkle of dried basil. I cut the recipe in half except for the garlic and spinach,left them as is, and used penne pasta. Thanks for sharing a good one!

I really enjoyed this recipe. I had most of the ingredients on hand, however the only substitution i made was to use Italian parsley instead of basil and used whole wheat linguini. I look forward to using this recipe again, Evie! Thanks so much for sharing it!

I like making this too but not always with the tomatoes and sun-dried tomatoes. It's good either way but it depends on what I have in the kitchen. Shitakes are a little more flavorful if you can get them. The kind of pasta you use is also changeable. I usually use linguine or fettucine.
