This was wonderful! My husband left out the spinach, but other than that he didn’t vary from the recipe

Didn’t state the amount of cream- used about 1/4 cup., this seemed ok. Was easy to make and tasty, served 3 people as quite rich.

Easy to follow although it doesn’t say how much cream to used milk with some flour. I will definitely make again but maybe use chestnut mushrooms and/or pine nuts

Very forgiving recipe. No fresh tomatoes, I added sun dried and a red pepper. No bacon, added chicken sausage. Delicious

Turned this into a tomato sauce recipe instead of cream sauce and it was AMAZING. I will definitely be making it again.
Turned out great! Unfortunately, I over ate, I followed the recipe, but I wonder how it’d taste with beef.

Great! I added mushrooms to mine, just before adding the bacon

Great. It doesn’t specify how much cream to add. I guessed 1/2 cup. It turned out fine.

Tastes so good! The recipe didn't list cream.... So naive me didn't buy it (but I subbed with a cup of milk and cornflower). I also added grated ginger and olives. I'd definitely make this again though!
