Tasty and I only used chicken. Will make again.
This is my "new" favorite serve to company pasta dish. It was so good. Both my husband and I loved it and he is not a big pasta fan. We thought the flavor was right on....any dish with bacon is GOOD!
I cooked the shrimp in garlic and butter.. I also added 4 oz cream cheese to the cream mixture..i also used fresh cherry tomatoes and yellow peppers picked fresh from the garden ,instead of the canned tomatoes. my family loved will make again .
I liked this concept, however I found it to be a tad bland. The textures and consistency was spot on. I especially enjoyed the crunch of the bacon. I would suggest sautéing the shrimp in butter and garlic to add another layer of flavor. Seasoning is a must...I added salt and cracked pepper and that livened it up a bit! I'll try it again for sure cooking the shrimp in butter.butter makes everything better!
