I just made this for my boyfriend and myself, and we loved it so much that he wants me to make it for his parents again tomorrow night! I used morels that we had picked fresh and frozen, and added some criminis. If you have access to morels, they MADE this dish! I also used a bit more of the fresh basil, garlic and parsley than called for, because I love them. Otherwise I followed the recipe to a T. But those morels... they really add so much depth. We had this with a side of steamed kale and a Caprese salad made with heirloom tomatoes. Try this one, you won't be disappointed!!

I made these with Trader Joe's Lemon and Pepper Papparelle noodles. i did not add the pasta water. I did add red pepper flakes, but the noodles are already peppery so don't add to many, and toasted pine nuts. I used fresh chopped basil only.

This was delicious! I used scallions instead of shallots and whole wheat pasta, and added a touch of crushed red pepper, but otherwise followed the recipe exactly. I will definitely make again.
