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!

Delicious, and fairly easy to execute. I added a couple cloves of finely minced fresh garlic after the mushrooms were finished sauteeing. Will definitely make this one again.

Very easy, quick, and delicious. I made it basically as written, using one box whole wheat blend linguini and halved grape tomatoes. I also added minced garlic with the mushrooms and a handful of chopped basil leaves at the end, because my plant needed a trim. The testament to the yumminess was that my husband's 2nd helping was bigger than the first. Keeper!
