    This made a nice quick dinner with just garlic bread on the side. I made it as written except for leaving out the mushrooms. The pasta was a little dry, but still very good.

    I made this recipe on Valentine's Day this year and also two days ago for my mother's birthday. It is FANTASTIC!! Every bite is like a party in your mouth. I only had dried tomatoes in oil and used them. They tasted great in it. Thanks for the great recipe!!
