I scaled back for 3 serves and used a 375 gram pack of mixed pasta veal tortellini and about 8 baby belle mushrooms, otherwise made as per recipe except when serving I put the tortellini into a oven proof dish and poured the sauce over and mixed through the pasta to and put in a warm oven to let the flavours develop while a made a side of a garden salad and heated up the garlic bread and when serving I sprinkled sharp cheddar cheese on top as my lot do not like parmesan which they refer to as spew cheese but all 4 of us enjoyed immensely as was, thank you Katanashrp, made for Name that Ingredient tag game.
I was in a bit of a quandry on how to rate this recipe. I gave it a 4 because of the flavor of the sauce. The flaw in this recipe is that there is just not enough sauce. I had ended up with 1 1/4 cup mushrooms, simply because I had sliced them up before measuring, so I made the full amount of the sauce except for using half the cream, and made only 1/2 lb of tortellini. There was not enough sauce for two servings. I had also added a 1/2 cup of dried shiitakes, rehydrated, as I find dried mushrooms really punch up the flavor. The garlic was a bit too subtle for me, I would probably slice the cloves next time. I used half and half instead of cream and that worked quit well. So if you are making this, keep in mind that you may want more sauce.
