      So easy and delicious! I didn't measure but I'm fairly certain I doubled the cheese. I skipped using the oil at the end, and just dumped the noodles, water, and egg mixture together at the same time (an accident but it worked out fine). I also left off the mushrooms as I only had white ones, and I didn't think they would get cooked enough. Cooking my bacon in the microwave (5 minutes) made it even faster. Will definitely make this again...and again!

      Delicous! The only change we made was to use canned mushrooms instead of fresh ones. Since I had it on hand! Next time I will make the sauce half over again, and add some chicken! Thanks for posting -- this is a definite "make over and over again" recipe! [Made for PAC Fall 2009]
