I had reconstituted some porcini mushrooms for another dish that I couldn't make; so I looked through the index for another recipe, and I chose this one for the lusciousness of the ingredients. And I wasn't disappointed -- it was delicious. The big problem was the proportions; 1 lb of dried pasta will feed generously four hungry adults, not two. And the number of servings listed will naturally have a big impact on the calorie count. For the two of us I used 200 g penne, 1 oz of mushrooms (soaked in water and washed several times), 1 small shallot, 1 scarce oz of prosciutto, halved the wine, tomato, basil and cheese and quartered the cream. Perfection. I hope the recipe will be revised for the amount of pasta, and then we can all give this splendid recipe all the stars it deserves.
