YUM-O! I will add more bacon next time to add just a little more flavor. Thanks!

Very nice dish. I used try colored tortellini. Shitake was unavailable, so used button. Since white corn is non existent in my town, I had to use regular yellow. :)

This was great! My picky eaters loved it! I browned some ground beef in a seperate skillet and added the cooked gr. beef at step 10. when adding the bacon too. My hubby's request since he's a big guy and he was sure bacon wouldn't suffice alone =/ This was soo good!!! No shataki mushrooms here so used regular white ones and sliced em' up real good and added double the corn and the parm. cheese...we love that stuff in my house. A+ Thanks a bunch!
