"This was really good. I did use jarred mushrooms. I also used the whole box of fettuccine. It was very fresh tasting."

"We were very disappointed with this recipe. I was looking forward to trying another new recipe but the outcome lacked any substantial flavor. I will NOT be making this again I'm sorry to say."

"We thought this was delish just as it is. Easy too. Badkitty, you did not make this dish, you made something entirely different."

"Delicious! This is an easy yet unique recipe and it is awesome! I had to add some salt to taste though, it was a little sweet almost. And I used fresh tomatoes...much tastier!"

"Since asparagus is now in season, I used it instead of broccoli and added garlic when cooking the meat and in the saute of vegetables. Our family thought it was very good."
