I threw this dish of penne pasta, pancetta and mushrooms together when that's all I had - it turned out to be delicious!
My family loved it! It was definitely a restaurant quality dish. I substituted evaporated milk for the cream and added some Parmesan cheese to the sauce during cooking. Fresh tomatoes, fresh basil, and shredded Parmesan garnished the top. We will be making this again. - 09 Oct 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
I tried this last night and it was very good! I did kind of wing it when it came to ingredient amounts. The only thing I may do differently next time is add in a bit of chicken stock to make it a little less rich. I also added way more than the 1/2 cup of cream, just because I was afraid it wouldn't be enough sauce for us and I'm glad I did. There are a lot of possibilities for the recipe. It would be great w/ chopped tomatoes on top. Thanks for the recipe! - 24 Oct 2007 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
This was pretty good however it does need twice the sauce. We used bacon instead of pancetta. And it was still good! - 26 Nov 2008 (Review from Allrecipes US | Canada)
