“Delicious mushroom pasta with its flavour delicately enhanced and lightened with mint. Eaten as a cold salad with BBQ or as a warm side dish for French or Italian mains. Crack some pepper on top and decorate with unused mint leaves before serving warm.” - by ASKA17

"I initially wasn't sure about the combination of mint & mushrooms but this was delicious! I healthed it up a bit by using half-and-half rather than heavy cream & I didn't need an entire quart; it was..." See more more like half that. I'll stick to my changes. I served it alongside the Super-Delicious Zuppa Tuscaca."
"I was looking for something that was only a 'little risky' for a potluck, so mushroom and mint sounded just about right. I wasn't sure about the combination either, but it was a hit. Having said that..." See more, adjustments needed to be made. An entire quart of cream is way too much -- half that is about right. Four onions is pushing it as well. I had only small onions, and slicing three seemed to be more than enough. Make such adjustments and you're good to go."
