"Saw this on Guy Fieri's show and it looked fantastic. It got great reviews on the food network site so I thought I'd post it here so I can try it later. Pappardelle pasta can be found in the dairy section of most major grocery stores, if unable to fined, any wide noodle pasta will work. Some reviews mentioned that olive oil was used instead of truffle oil. Submitted to www.recipezaar.com on Feb. 16, 2010."

"Made this for dinner, very nice! For me I halved the mushrooms because I'm not a big fan, I used some mixed gourmet mushrooms, since I wasn't sure which ones were in the recipe. I had four different types all cut up finely. I also felt like there wasn't enough butter to cook the mushrooms in, so I did end up putting a bit more in. I was unable to access the aragula, so I used something called landcress, which is a relation to watercress, only had about 1 cups worth of green matter, which is a shame, but what can you do? Finally I didn't have any truffle oil, so I just sprinkled a little more olive oil on at the end.
We really enjoyed this recipe, I'm looking forward to being a little more true to it next time around, however I was happy with my quantity changes.
Thanks for another lovely dinner Papa D."
"Made this for a dinner party and it was a hit! Easy and looks and tastes fabulous!"
"I am so enjoying this right now! Unlike the previous reviewer, I loved the arugula and actually increased the amount called for! Such a nice lemony peppery taste to the arugula! I used small bay scallops, and didn't halve them. This is so quick and easy to make.....don't know why more people haven't made this. Made for Photo Tag Mardi Gras Special!"
"This is an excellent recipe!! The only changes I would make in the future is to add more salt and substitute fresh basil instead of arugula. I used half basil and half arugula this time around, and I think the basil adds just a bit more complementary flavour than arugula. More people should give this recipe a try!!"
