“This recipe is sooo easy because it uses a packaged product for the pasta and sauce. But you would never know it because it is so delicious! Part of the secret is sauteing the shrimp and mushrooms in the drippings from frying the bacon, so be sure and cook the bacon in a frying pan instead of the microwave.”

  • 1 package lipton pasta and sauce packaged mix, creamy garlic
