Reviewed portobello cream sauce with whole-wheat linguini

Feb 24, 2014 on FoodNetwork.com

Delicious! I was looking for a recipe that would use up odds and ends in my fridge which included portobellos and heavy cream. This was perfect. Easy to make. The only problem I had was that it did not thicken (or I didn't wait long enough for it to cook down). I ended up adding a bit of cornstarch (mixing it in a bit of liquid from the sauce before...

Was delicious. I loved the ginger. Reminded me of some tomato dishes I had in Africa. Works great with the okra. I used whole sun gold tomatoes and they were delicious. I wish there was a little more liquid in the dish cause I served it over rice. Next time, I will add something more saucy, not sure what yet."

This was delicious! Before closing up the pot, I added some chopped fresh tomatoes, 2x the cumin, and salt. I added the spinach after I took off the lid and added some letover cooked basmati rice. Really yummy. Thank you for sharing this super easy, quick and delicious recipe."

I have made these several times for myself, my 1 year old son and his little friends and their moms. They are delicious! Modifications I made: use all AP flour or use AP and graham flour. I think flax flour would work as well. Cut the sugar way down -- last time I used 1/4 cup + a couple of tsp of brown sugar. Plenty sweet. Instead of the pineappl"

Yum! I made this pie pretty much according to the recipe except I used cornstarch instead of tapioca. It was delicious!! I think it's even more tasty after spending a night in the fridge and having it the next day. It definitely screams for a big dollop of vanilla ice cream, which I did not have. This was the first strawberry-rhubarb pie I have ma"

This was great! I am a vegetarian, my husband is not. He loved it. Me too. I could definitely see making this for a buffet or potluck dinner. The portobellos fry up beautifully and it all goes together really easily. I love the panko and parm coating. Nice recipe. Definitely will make it again. Thanks!

Stellar! I have made a lot of pumpkin pies and this is my favorite. It is light and tasty. I prepared the pumpkin as Alton shows. I used a sugar pie pumpkin which is essential. In the past I have gone the steaming and food mill method. Baking the pumpkin works beautifully! For my ginger snaps, I used Trader Joe's triple ginger snaps which are themselves...
