This recipe is solid! I didn't have milk at hand so I used 2 cups of water instead, and added half a cup of melted spreadable sharp cheese with 2 tbsp of butter. I also didn't have fresh thyme or basil so I used an italian seasoning containing both. I also used 4 cups of spinach and 2 cups of mushrooms instead. Even with all of these adjustments, along with my skepticism, the sauce came out perfect.

Simply simple and delicious. I can't believe how much the spinach and mushroom sauce tasted like alfredo sauce. I'm vegan so I substituted the milk with almond milk. Oh and I used whole wheat pasta instead. Delicious!!

Very, very good. I added some red pepper flakes with the thyme (I'm on spicy food kick right now) and also some leftover turkey from Canadian Thanksgiving. Didn't have fresh basil and can only imagine just how good it would be with that - can't wait to try again. Also reduced the pasta to 7 ounces which was more than enough for 4 people in our house.

i made this meal tonight and it turned out great. I, however, did not add flour or milk to make a sauce. So it was more sauteed veggies tossed with pasta. I seasoned with garlic powder, salt, pepper and tons of basil. Will definitely make this again. I will also make the spinach and mushrooms separately as a side dish.

Very easy and tasty recipe, still developing my cooking skills and had to substitute noodles for fusilli pasta which still came out like a dish you would get and zizzi's

This recipe is amazing! I made it for my husband, who usually wants to eat meat with every meal and he loved it too. I substituted one cup of milk with low sodium chicken broth but followed the rest of the recipe. Thank you.

Delicious! Added a tbsp of butter and evaporated milk (instead of regular milk) for the sauce.

The sauce reminds me of a soup I had at Olive Garden, I used half for pasta and ate the other half as a soup. Very good:) I would try adding some shredded mozzarella cheese to the sauce while cooking! This was my fist time making my own homemade sauce for pasta, and I loved it.

I'm really impressed with this recipe. I've made it as posted, and have also experimented with adding/omitting herbs and spices, and adding chicken. It has always turned out perfectly, and is a huge hit with the husband and toddler. I love the simplicity not only of the process, but of the ingredients. Thanks for posting, Moody! This is a new regular in my dinner rotation.
