      Super easy and wow was it good! I used bacon rather than ham, 2 eggs and I doubled the cheese. My husband said "you can make this any time you want to". That makes it a 10 star recipe in my world! Thanks for Posting!

      This is so quick and easy to make and tastes delicious!!! I did add a couple of cloves of garlic when cooking the mushrooms and just used some sliced deli ham I had in the fridge. I also added more cheese, we all love our Parmesan. Followed everything else as written and it made for a great pasta dish. My son is the biggest pasta lover in the house and he thought it was really good. I will definitely be keeping this one as a great after work fast meal that is filling and so tasty. I served ours with a nice green side salad and it was delicious. Cheers sydney for fab pasta recipe
