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.

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.
