If you want to display the image of a simple product added to the shopping cart, please check the following Magento settings:
1. System > Configuration > Checkout > Shopping Cart
2. Configurable Product Image > Product Thumbnail Itself
If you set the setting above, you will see a correct simple product image in the cart, not a default configurable one.
Please Note: It is not possible to show simple product name in the shopping cart.
