I had leftover spaghetti in the fridge, so this was a perfect and easy supper for DH and I. I omitted the mushrooms since I don't particularly like them, but otherwise struck to recipe, we very much enjoyed this .. I thought I might have liked a pinch of red pepper flakes or chilli, but DH said no, perfect as is! Thank you Nymphadora Tonks (love the name ;) )

This is wonderful. It was a real treat. We all enjoyed this recipe. The taste of the bacon with the shrimps is great. I used asiago cheese. Thanks Nymphadora Tonks :) Made for PAC spring 2011

I typed in bacon, shrimp, mushrooms, & cream and this is one of the recipes that came up. It sounded great so I tried it for dinner tonight. The only change I made was I used rice instead of pasta. It was easy and it tastes great. My husband absolutely loved it. He says I should make it once a week. I won't make it that often, but I did put it in my "tried & true" cookbook. Thanks!
