    Because of what I had on hand I used rotini pasta, no mushrooms and cream of mushroom soup. Very good flavor....wasn't sure what to expect. My 6 year old loved it!

    We loved the taste of the creamy honey mustard sauce with the salty baccon. (I added extra baccon.)Good contrast.

    I fixed this recipe today and got rave reviews from my husband. It was yummy and had really good flavor. I used shell pasta rather than bowtie, since that's what I had on hand. I used a honey dijon mustard but would probably use plain next time because it made the dish taste a tad too sweet for my liking. I will definitely make this again!
