Delicious pasta dish which adapts easily to a variety of tastes. We added more mushrooms and a little extra garlic. Also, doubling the sauce was essential which meant using a half pint of cream.

I too thought the thyme was to strong....added more flour and whipping cream to drown it out...then was good so I suggest less thyme or non at all.

I made this tonight and didn't care for it at all. I've discovered I hate Thyme. After the first bite I tried adding more sauce because it was so dry but nothing drowned out the strong taste of the thyme.

This is sooo good. My boys decided they wanted to go vegetarian for a month, and I could really lose some weight. While I was making this I thought it would be good with parmesan cheese, but I tasted it first. No need to add cheese.

I did double the sauce ingredients (flour, seasonings and cream) because I had added close to twice the veggies the recipe called for. Came out perfect! We will be making this one a lot!
