Just had this for lunch, left out the celery as not the biggest fan but still tasted lovely.
Doesn't take too long and was very easy!

Next time will try to flavour the tomato sauce a little more also.

I think there could have been more depth of flavour here, something was missing - tried adding balsamic vinegar but that didnt help. Wont cook it again.

Another triumph! This is delicious - we added a splash of balsamic vinegar for taste, and also a little extra garlic. I ate two bowls of it (woops!) and my other half devoured the rest. Kids weren't too keen but then they don't like spicy food, anyway. The great thing about this dish is you could substitute the veg for anything you have in the fridge - I used celery as I already had some, but you could throw peppers, courgette, carrots... anything in it, really! Gorgeous with some parmesan grated on top ^_^

very nice although the tomato sauce needed much more flavour... perhaps a splash of tomato ketchup and some worcestershire sauce? I used 3 cloves of garlic and the mushrooms still arent that garlic-ky. But delicious all the same.

My boyfriend adores this dish as he's a mushroom lover. I love it because it's so quick and simple to prepare, and low in fat too. However I do agree with others, it needs a little something more, so I just pop in more chilli, a dash of worcester sauce and squeeze of tomato puree to give it a little more depth of flavour.

Made this tonight, but used 2 1/2 cloves of garlic and a full chilli, and only used 200g pasta rather than the reccomended 300g. Still I found there wasn't enough sauce compared to pasta for my taste (too little sauce), so I would definatly make again, but would up quantities for the sauce.

Loved it will definitely make this dish again wish i knew the total grams of fat.

It was ok...but not amazing. I added some courgettes but still think it missed something. More chilli was needed too.

A very fresh tasting dish which I enjoyed. It was a little lacking in flavour though so I will add more garlic and chilli next time.

Made my own tomato sauce adding some puree, sliced garlic and a sprinkle of vegetable stock granules for extra flavour. Left out the celery. Was dee-lish-ous! Now a regular favourite for veggies and non-veggies alike!

A quick and easy recipe - perfect for post-work cooking. I added prawns to bulk it up a little - worked really well.

Added courgette instead of celery - really delicious! Will definitely make it again.

Yum! Quick and easy and tasty. Agree that the mushrooms would be nice more garlicky but all in all a hit!
