    Loved the sauce and i also added in shrimp. Turned out wonderful but only personal alteration i would make next time would be to thicken the sauce by using less water and cook for a bit uncovered in the end. Thanks.

    I have never been more infuriated. This is not a sauce, it is SOUP. Maybe don’t use the water at all and use ~4 tbs. of butter instead to make it more sauce-like

    It did not taste like I had in mind. Really could not taste the garlic and I added more than it called for. My husband liked it a lot.

    Good flavor, but I definitely agree with the other reviews to omit the water. In addition, I would use less wine, less onion (maybe 3/4 cup), and more garlic. Also, I would use fresh tomatoes and add them to the sauce later on. Oh, and don't be afraid to be generous with the spices!!!

    The combination of herbs, wine, olive oil, mushrooms and tomatoes make a very nice sauce. I took others advice and made some changes, though. Omitted the water. Added fresh, seeded, diced tomatoes and fresh sliced mushrooms instead of canned. Half sliced green onions and diced white onions. Used chicken tenderloins because that is what I had. Same amount of other ingredients. Followed the directions otherwise. My husband and I really enjoyed this! Will make again. Oh...also threw in some frozen shrimp at the end that needed using up.

    Used hot Rotel's tomatoe. If you like spicy you would like this.

    Yum! I made a few changes. The first was mostly cause I'm having a bad month and don't care about calories recently, I replaced the water with butter. The second is I cooked the pasta half way with in water and then transferred it to the sauce to finish. Thirdly, I added

    I just made this tonight for my husband. He loved it. I liked it- it was good! I too used chicken stock instead of water, sauteed fresh mushrooms first then followed the recipe pretty much as written, except I went heavier on the spices and on the wine. I added a lot of Pecorino Romano at the very end to thicken it up a bit. Next time I might add about a mug full of the starchy pasta liquid to let things come together more and add a bit less stock and wine. Thanks for the recipe!! Definitely making it again!

    This was very good. I followed your recipe for the most part. I cut it in half and at least tripled the herbs. Instead of water, I used chicken stock for more flavor. I also used canned tomoatoes with garlic and onion. (they were a wonderful add of flavor!) Sadly, we had no mushrooms in the house at the time, though I would have loved to have them in this, fresh. I left out the rosemary as my mother is not too fond of it's taste, though I would imagine it tasting excellent in this. She enjoyed eating slivered almonds on top! In the end, this was quite delicious and I loved it so much. Thank you for sharing!

    This was a great recipe! I really enjoyed the taste. I doubled the garlic, used shallots instead of onion, no bay leaf, and I used angel hair pasta instead of lingune so you could taste the sauce better. My husband and I both cleaned our plates!
