      Mmm! I made this recipe a few years ago, but my husband and I found it a little too sweet, and not enough salt. I was craving a dish that was made like this for me in Sorrento, so decided to try it again though. I left out the Marsala, and added 1/4 tsp of salt to the sauce just before putting in the parmesan. We still felt it needed a bit more salt, but not much - so perhaps 1/3 tsp if you are going to use unsalted butter. Other than that, I stuck to the recipe using the max recommended amounts (1/2 cup mushrooms, 1/2 cup parmesan) It was very rich and filling - much like the one I had in Sorrento, so fully filled my craving! Oh yes, I also used a mix of Oyster, Porcini, Chanterelle & Shiitake mushrooms; it tasted really nice, but I must admit I'm very partial to porcini's still.

      This was certainly an easy lunch to make. We thought it needed a considerable amount of salt to give it more flavor. We made no modifications to the recipe other than we didnt use whole wheat pasta. I used farfalle noodles. Thanks!
