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!

Yum! This was really good! I didn't have any shallots, so I used a small amount of onion and I used regular/white mushrooms.

Best fancy mac and cheese EVER! I made this for my husband on Valentine's Day and it was so great. I found that if you let the sauce cook a few minutes longer, it thickens a great deal on its own. I will definitely recommend this recipe.

This is some of the best "grown-up" mac and cheese I have ever had. We loved the blend of flavors. I already have plans to share the recipe with several friends that I know will love it. I did follow the advice of a previous reviewer and drain off most of the bacon fat before sauteing the mushrooms, shallots and garlic. I also simmered the cream for just a bit before adding the tortellini, parsley and bacon...just to thicken it a bit.

This a wonderful! I used cheese and spinach stuffed tortellini and heavy whipping cream - no cutting the fat for me! LOL! I only wish I had increased the sauce by at least 1/2- 3/4 cup. I will remember to do this next time! I did realize when preparing this recipe that I had purchased shredded parmesan cheese, so I added a little more than 1 cup. Somehow "macaroni and cheese" is too casual a term for this wonderful dish, so the title of the recipe fits it! It is so elegant looking and delicious! Another great recipe to have when company is coming! Thanks Roxygirl!

Very good and different mac n' cheese which we enjoyed. I did try to cut down on the fat content a little by using the whipping cream mixed with 1% milk. As I had about of Italian blend shredded cheese I used that instead of the Parmesan - very good and filling, but a tad greasy from the bacon drippings - next time I think I'll drain off most of the dripping before adding the mushrooms. Thanks for sharing!
