    Thank you for your recipe! I tried it tonight without chicken and mushrooms since we didnt have any in the fridge. It still came out so good! Im also happy coz i was able to use up the leftover heavy cream and spinach. I chopped and used up half of a big package of spinach. Finally no more spinach going to trash this week! Your recipe is so easy and this is my first time making a one pan pasta dish. My little girl saw the spinach and didn't want to try it, but after i convinced her to try a bite, she kept coming back for more! Thank you again.

    I've made this recipe twice now, and my family loves it! I sub low sodium chicken broth for water to increase the flavor and cut out a little of the fat by using half and half instead of cream. Can't beat a flavorful one-pot dish!

    Fresh or dried basil? Whole, sliced or minced garlic?

    I'm not sure what went wrong but the water didn't reduce enough. I followed the recipe exactly and the pasta was cooked to the right doneness by about 13 mins but there was so much water left that I had to remove some before adding the cream. Yet it still ended up super liquidy & didn't thicken. I really like the flavor and ingredient combo so please help me figure out the problem!!

    This recipe must be a hoax to sabotage your dinner. Who cooks pasta with 4 cups of water and doesn't need to drain it? Two tablespoons of basil is disgusting, also. It only took us a few seconds of starting this recipe before we realized how much we needed to modify. Less than one star. Boo.
