      Wow! This was sooo delicious!
      I used frozen Porcini and fresh Roma tomatoes. I didn't imagine that this would be such a big hit!
      I exchanged the penne with pasta fresca (Linda's Spinach Pasta Fresca) and everything was a dream together!
      The recipe is perfect! Thanks a lot for posting this recipe!

      Wonderful dish! I used fresh porcini mushrooms and might add the thyme next time, but I wanted to enjoy just as Pierce does! It is really, really tasty! Made for Please Review My Recipe Tag Game.
