Meaty mushrooms and a kickin’ hot cheese sauce take this simple pasta toss from drab to fab! My family loves the fact that it tastes like a restaurant dish but is made at home. — Veronica Callaghan, Glastonbury, Connecticut

"It's good, not great. There are too many mushrooms relative to the amount of pasta. The sauce could use a little white wine, maybe. It might be better over egg noodles, since it has a stroganoff taste to it."

"Amazing dish! The pepper jack cheese adds just the right amount of heat. My kids love it too! I at least double the recipe though as everyone in my house happily eats the leftovers!"

"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 & a

few dashes of hot sauce for more kick. The
portobello mushrooms are the secret. Served at room temp on a hot day in Texas"

"One of the best recipes I've ever made. My husband was actually mad that I had eaten the leftovers the next day so I had to make it again that night. It is spicy. I found that mellowed once reheated. Add some garlic bread and a salad and you have a nice meatless meal."
