    If you eat meat, a bit of crispy pancetta on top is a great addition.

    This was a tasty, quick and reasonably healthy supper. I was unsure about uncooked mushrooms in the sauce but slicing them thinly means they wilt a little from the heat of the pasta. As others have said, needs a liberal topping of Parm to lift the flavors.

    Nice and very quick/easy to make. I would use a little less garlic next time: since it's raw it comes through very strongly. I loved the lemony flavours. Needs lots of cheese!

    I did a vegan version for dinner guests by using home-made cashew nut vegan Parmesan. Also I am not a big fan of lemon so added only half of what was suggested and my dinner guests added a bit more to their servings for the more intense lemon flavour. I also steeped the button mushrooms as suggested but after cooking the pasta, while draining it in a colander added the steeped mushrooms to the pan to quickly heat through and then re-added the pasta. It was nice having the mushrooms not fully ‘cooked’ . All up it took less than 15 mins - boiling the water took the longest, and my vegan guests and I all agreed it was a 10/10

    Since I don‘t like raw mushrooms, I gave them a quick sautée along with the garlic, lemons zest and juice, and added a splash of cream in the end. Still took less time than for the pasta to finish cooking. Lovely!

    Very quick and pretty healthy (I used whole wheat linguine) but I found it a touch bland and unexciting. Easily corrected by adding lots more parmesan cheese on top, which made it pretty good!

    Supereasy and very delicious. Will definitely make this again.

    p. 291 Another lovely dish from Nigella. Delightful in its simplicity and ability to profile the flavours of each ingredient. The texture the mushrooms bring to the dish is an unexpected pleasure. I used just picked lemon-thyme to enhance the lemon flavours of the dish and a mix of shiitake and cremini mushrooms. (which I sautéed vs steeped) Though I wouldn’t have thought of creating a mushroom-thyme pasta dish, I’m glad Nigella did. We’ll most certainly have this again.
