Shrimp and Bacon Pasta

Shrimp and Bacon Pasta
This shrimp and bacon pasta recipe is fresh and full of flavor. The creamy tomato sauce is to die for, and this dish is ready in only 30 minutes!
Provided by: Natasha Bull
Total time: 30 minutes
Cook time: 20 minutes
Prep time: 10 minutes
Yields: 4 servings
Cuisine: Italian
Number of ingredients: 12
  • 8 ounces uncooked pasta
  • 1 pound medium or large shrimp (thawed & peeled (remove tails if desired))
  • 4 strips bacon (cut into small pieces)
  • 1 medium tomato (diced finely)
  • 1 large clove garlic (minced)
  • 1 teaspoon Dijon mustard
  • 2 dashes Italian seasoning
  • 1/4 cup chicken broth or dry white wine
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 1/2 cup freshly grated parmesan cheese
  • Salt & pepper (to taste)
  • Fresh parsley (chopped (optional))
How to cook:
  1. Boil a large, salted pot of water for the pasta. Cook al dente according to package directions.
  2. Prep your bacon (I use kitchen shears to make it easy to cut it up). Fry the bacon over medium-high heat in a skillet until crispy (7-10 mins.). Take the bacon out of the pan and set aside.
  3. Drain most of the bacon fat from the pan, but keep a little bit in for flavor. Add the tomato, garlic, Dijon mustard, Italian seasoning, and chicken broth to the pan. Give it a good stir and let it simmer for about 1-2 minutes.
  4. Add the cream to the pan. Let it cook for 5 minutes (so it reduces & thickens). If it's bubbling like crazy, turn down the heat.
  5. Add the shrimp and bacon to the pan. Let it cook for another 4-5 minutes or until the shrimp have cooked through.
  6. Drain the pasta and add it to the pan, tossing until it's nicely coated in the sauce.
  7. Stir in the parmesan cheese and season with salt & pepper as needed. Garnish with parsley if using.

How to cook:
  1. • Bring a large pot of salted water to a boil. Wash and dry produce. • Drain and rinse corn; pat dry with paper towels. Peel and mince garlic. Mince chives. Quarter lemon. • Once water is boiling, add spaghetti to pot. Cook, stirring occasionally, until al dente, 9-11 minutes. • Reserve 1½ cups pasta cooking water (2 cups for 4 servings), then drain.
  2. • While pasta cooks, heat a drizzle of oil in a large, preferably nonstick, pan over medium-high heat. Add corn and paprika; cook, stirring occasionally, until corn is lightly charred, 4-6 minutes. (TIP: If corn begins to pop, cover pan.) Season with ¼ tsp sugar (½ tsp for 4 servings), salt, and pepper. • Turn off heat; transfer corn to a large bowl. Wipe out pan.
  3. • Heat same pan over medium-high heat. Add bacon*; cook, turning occasionally and adjusting heat if browning too quickly, until crispy, 6-10 minutes. • Turn off heat; transfer bacon to a paper-towel-lined plate. • Carefully discard all but a thin layer of bacon fat (you’ll use this to cook the shrimp).
  4. • Meanwhile, rinse shrimp* under cold water; pat dry with paper towels. Season all over with salt and pepper. • Heat pan with reserved bacon fat over high heat. Once pan is very hot, add shrimp. Cook, stirring occasionally, until opaque and cooked through, 2-3 minutes. • Using a slotted spoon, transfer shrimp to a paper-towel-lined plate. Remove pan from heat; let cool for 1 minute.
  5. • Return same pan to medium-high heat. Add garlic; cook until fragrant, 30 seconds. • Whisk in 1 cup reserved pasta cooking water (1½ cups for 4 servings), cheese roux, and stock concentrate. Cook, whisking, until slightly thickened, 2-3 minutes. • Reduce heat to medium low; whisk in cream cheese until thoroughly combined.
  6. • Add drained spaghetti, half the Parmesan (save the rest for serving), and 2 TBSP butter (4 TBSP for 4 servings) to pan with sauce. Cook, tossing, until butter has melted and pasta is coated in a creamy sauce, 1-2 minutes. (TIP: If needed, stir in more pasta cooking water a splash at a time.) Taste and season with salt and pepper.
  7. • Roughly chop bacon. • Stir shrimp, half the bacon, half the corn, half the chives, and juice from half the lemon into pan with pasta. • Divide pasta between plates. Top with remaining bacon, remaining corn, remaining Parmesan, remaining chives, and chili flakes to taste. Squeeze juice from remaining lemon over top to taste. Serve.
