Reviews for Peppered Portobello Penne
"So good, it definitely satisfied my mushroom craving! It doubles easily for lunches the next day. I made it for the first time tonight and I never rate recipes, but I had to for this one. I have even passed it on to my mushroom loving friends. Will definitely be making again."
"My husband said this is a high-quality fancy restaurant dish. He absolutely loved it. One of my daughters, who is a food connoisseur, was speechless and then immediately ran over to read the recipe; she loves it too! I used 8 oz. of penne, and 2 8-oz. packages of baby bella (cremini) mushrooms. I used only 1/4 tsp. salt and 1/8 tsp. of pepper. I also stirred in 1/2 Tbsp. (1-1/2 tsp.) of flour after cooking the mushrooms and before adding the cream. Very easy, very tasty! Make sure you like mushrooms, it's definitely only for mushroom lovers."
"Full of flavor. I added thinly sliced steak & afew dashes of hot sauce for more kick. Theportobello mushrooms are the secret. Served at room temp on a hot day in Texas"
"I doubled the recipe & added 1/2 lb. ground Italian sausage...my husband doesn't do meatless meals!"
"Our family Loved It!! Great recipe."
