This was nice as a midweek meal but too much pasta. I added courgettes and some roast peppers from a jar along with extra garlic in the sauce and a splash of red wine and Lea & Perrins. Perfect!

Loved this, especially the warmth of the chili coming through. I also added extra garlic, tom puree & some red wine to the sauce. The mushrooms were delicious.

A tasty and unusual way to use up the celery in our veg box delivery.

really really tasty! i used courgettes instead of celery and added some chick peas which worked really well i also used a garlic paste which worked better with the mushrooms. i added a few pinches of dried mixed herbs which was also nice and gave it a good flavour.
will make again for sure!

This was a quick and easy week night meal but I have to agree that it was missing something. It definitely needed a little more chilli or garlic. The garlic in the mushrooms wasn't really strong enough to carry the dish. I kept the celery in and actually quite liked it even though I'm not usually a fan.

Agree with the others that it lacked something - although a splash of red wine to the sauce helped. More garlic would have improved the flavour I think. Added a handful of wilted spinach to up the veggie content.

Used courgettes instead of celery as Dawn did,used passatta instead of tinned tomatos and added a splash of worcester sauce. Very tasty! Will definately make this again.

I added extra garlic to the mushrooms and put some garlic into the tomato sauce along with a dollop of tomato ketchup.
Very tasty and quick.
