    BakinBaby's Note:

    Rumor has it, this is Pierce Brosnan's favorite penne. It comes from one of Pierce's favorite restaurants, II Ristorante di Giorgio Baldi in California. It has become a Watson favorite with a few of our personal changes. The recipe calls for porcini mushrooms, since I can't find them here, I use fresh portobello mushrooms. This is so simple, but so.... good.

      This was a quick and delicous lunch, simple flavors that go well together. Made as written except for increasing the garlic. Made for ZWT 7 by a Food.commando

      This was a very tasty dish that was quick and easy to put together. The portabella mushrooms were meaty and hearty, which gave the dish a nice depth of flavor. I will be making this again. Thanks for posting this. Made for Newest Zaar Tag Game.
