Wow! This is one of the best carbonara recipes that I have ever tasted. The addition of tomatoes, mushrooms, and shrimp really makes for a well-rounded and flavorful dish. Ever since the Olive Garden stopped making Spaghetti Carbonara, I have been looking for a comparable dish, and this is one is tops!
