Reviews for Portobello Pasta Bake
"We are huge Portobello fans & this meal was easy & great tasting."
"Very tasty dish!"
"Yummy recipe that is rather flexible with ingredients."
"Pretty easy to make, tastes good."
"This was delicious! We had to use regular mushrooms and swiss cheese because we were out of mozzarella, and it still came out great!"
"This recipe is the BOMB!!! I wish there were leftovers so I could try it the next day, I'm sure it might even be better!! (If that's even possible)"
"I used zucchini instead of the turkey. Pretty good!"
"I have made this twice and everyone loves it."
"Made a few (or a lot, depending on how you look at it) changes to make this meatless and to suit the ingredients we had on hand: three-color rotini for the multigrain pasta, 5 oz (would have been better with 8 oz) white button mushrooms (cut in half and then sliced) for the portobellos, 2 Tbsp olive oil and left out the butter, 3 cups broccoli florets for the turkey, and Monteray Jack cheese for the mozzarella cheese.I also baked it in the same (oven-proof) skillet I sauted the mushrooms in - a 10-inch, non-stick skillet - for 10 minutes. But, next time I won't even bother with the oven and save the heat in my house. Using an already hot skillet meant that I could have just put on the cheese, covered the skillet, and waited 5 minutes for the cheese to melt.The whole family liked it and my two-year old even asked for seconds!"
"This is a great recipe. It was so delicious. We use turkey breast that we put in the slowcooker for half the day."
