"I loved this recipe. It was one of the first dinners that my lovely girlfriend made me in our first apartment. She did an amazing job making it. It was delicious! It was so good that she ended up making it again for lunch a few days later. Btw she is the most amazing woman on this planet! Thank you for dinner my love!"

"This was fantastic - my boyfriend actually said, "This tastes like something you'd order in a restaurant!"

I added fresh asparagus chopped into 1 inch pieces when sautéing the garlic and mushrooms. It was so wonderful. I look forward to making this again!"
