      This was delicious Caroline. I made it with low-sodium bacon. I also was using already cooked shrimp, so instead of adding it in Step 5, I added the shrimp to the white sauce at the end of step 8, heating it through just before removing and adding the parmesan. A very easy supper paired with a salad.
