I made this for my mom and I after we decided to get healthier. It was delicious. By the time I was done it looked like a yummy, quick mac and cheese. It tastes great, and the flavors blend nicely. I ended up adding some crushed red pepper also and it was a great addition. Since we serve everything in the kitchen and then carry it to the dinning room, my mom was eating off her plate before she even sat down to the table with it because she said it smelled too good to wait. Next time I think I add some more mushrooms though, because they ended up being sparse though the dish. Also be careful with the lemon, I only added 1 teaspoon of zest and a tablespoon and a half of juice and was just right, not to lemon-ey. Overall this is great, and I'll make it again.

The flavor was wonderful! I halved the lemon juice as 2T seemed a bit much in relation to the other ingredients. The "sauce" was extremely watery, so not sure where I went wrong. Would make this again in a NY minute. Made it with crimini, oyster and shiitake mushrooms and basil from the garden.

This recipe is not right. Too much lemon, so the taste is overwhelming. I thinking something is wrong, as the ingredients do not go well together at all. Do not make this if you want to enjoy your dinner!!
