Great recipe! Made it using regular penne, not whole wheat, but what could be better than a combination of pasta, mushrooms, bacon, blue cheese and spinach!

This is an exceptional recipe! I followed it exactly and it always turns out great! It is one of our favorites, as we try to eat meals with less meat several times per week. With only about one slice of bacon per person, it definitely falls in that category. The flavor combination is absolutely great!

Lots of great flavors! In contrast to first reviewer ours was a little dry, so we'll add more cooking liquid next time. We followed recipe to the letter, using whole wheat penne. Could have eaten the whole thing between the two of us, but used restraint!

very nice main dish, just added a rucola salad with tomatoes. I used kale instead of spinach and a mix of feta and gorgonzola, Otherwise stuck to the recipe. Pleasant flavor, and good to prepare in advance :)

Mine turned out watery. Overall, good taste.

I was weary of the dish being 'too watery' or 'too dry'.. However, it turned out fantastic. I added 1/2 cup of the reserved pasta water to the mixture. We have a vegetarian in the family, so I made half of the casserole bacon-free. The flavor still came out good without the bacon. I used medium sized shell pasta, and it worked out great to catch the blue cheese chunks. I will make again for a potluck.
