    My boyfriend and I tried this recipe one night and were surprised. He's not big on making sauces, but I insisted on trying it anyway. We used everything but the cornstarch and added instead at the end more Parmesan to thicken the sauce and turned the heat up high. This thickened it instantly. We also added spinach to the mushrooms for another healthy vegetable. We LOVED it! My boyfriend said it was better than the expensive Italian food we go out to.  -  31 Mar 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    Very good. Added some cooked, cut-up chicken when liquid was cooking, mixed cornstarch with water first before adding. Instead of just using Italian seasoning I also added oregano, black pepper, parsley, and onion powder. Used penne instead of fettucine. Will probably make this again.  -  17 Jan 2008  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)


    This turned out well with a bit of tweaking. Four mushrooms for six servings?? And like a previous reviewer notes, you've got to mix cornstarch with water or you'll end up with a grainy consistency.  -  01 Nov 2007  (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
