    It’s good, a bit dry even with all the butter and oil lol maybe I used too much pasta? Either way, it was still really good

    Great. I also used bacon and did breadcrumbs in bacon grease. Also added Parmesan cheese.

    This is delicious! I did follow the advice from another reviewer and add bacon. I toasted the bread crumbs in the bacon grease instead of using the olive oil. I also topped off the finished dish with fresh grated parmesan cheese.

    Not bad. Had pretty good flavor even though I only used 6 tablespoons of butter instead of 8. Seems like the dish could use more ingredients though. I would have to experiment with this one. If I made it again it would just be for a quick meal.

    My whole family really liked this. It was good and flavorful. I did wait for butter brown a little longer than the recipe suggested. I complimented the pasta with a parmesan salmon and asparagus.

    I didn’t care for it but hubby ate his all. The bread crumbs seem like an afterthought.

    I can’t get over how amazing this dish was! Was a bit dry, but it was so good, I would have ordered this in a restaurant.

    Pretty unimpressed, definitely needed more to it than 5 ingredients. Maybe good in a pinch if you have nothing else in though.

    Super simple, super delicious. I just used normal breadcrumbs but I used a lot less than the recipe requested.

    Please make sure you use the instructed breadcrumbs. I used regular breadcrumbs and it came out way too thick and tasting like bread

    It was really good ! We used it as a side dish for a tuna steak, it was great ! Maybe add a little more olive oil or use salted butter

    Delicious! I also added artichokes and lemon on top for taste; but the recipe is very tasty as-is! My family requested I make it again for the next two days.

    it was super delicious, and was even better the day after for lunch! Definitely will be a family favorite. The whole family thought it was fantastic. I took some tips from others, and doubled the mushrooms and it was yummy!

    This is a very naughty pasta. So many calories, and I thoroughly enjoyed every single one. I added a little bit of whole milk towards the end of the butter sauce. Not sure if it added much but I felt like it subdued all that butter. I also added a little bit more pasta so I wanted it to be enough liquid to cover the pasta. I love mushrooms so next time I might add more. Also I accidentally used Panko bread crumbs instead of French but it was freaking delish. Tasted gourmet !
