I am a disaster in the kitchen! I've made this twice in the past week and I LOVE IT! The flavors compliment each other wonderfully and it's an easy recipe for a beginner cook.

Very good, very simple. Great light dinner or also served half-portion as a side dish with grilled chicken.

This recipe was awesome. I did not have any lemon zest so I added a little extra of the lemon juice. I also had to change the type of mushrooms, because my supermarket did not carry shiitake. I used cremmnie and mini bella.

After two bites I was convinced this dish was a keeper. Easy to make as a weeknight meal, even my husband will have no trouble making it. The blend of basil with shiitake mushrooms was a joy to taste.

An excellent way to make a light dinner. Great with a nice Sauvignon Blanc. If you're on Weight Wathchers this is only 6 points.
