A quick and easy linguine pasta with succulent shrimp in a creamy alfredo sauce along with bacon and broccoli!

  • 8 ounces linguine or your favourite pasta (gluten free for gluten free)
  • 2 cups broccoli, cut into florets (optional)
  • 4 strips bacon, cut into 1 inch pieces (optional)
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 pound shrimp, peeled and deviened
  • 2 cloves garlic, chopped
  • 1 pinch red pepper flakes (optional)
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine (or chicken broth)
  • 1 cup heavy/whipping cream
  • 1 cup parmigiano reggiano (parmesan), grated
  • salt and pepper to taste
  • 1 tablespoon parsley, chopped
  1. Start cooking the pasta as directed and steam the broccoli.
  2. Cook the bacon in a large pan and set aside on paper towels to drain, before draining off some or all of the bacon grease from the pan.
  3. Melt the butter in the pan over medium-high heat, add the shrimp and cook, about 2-3 minutes per side, and set aside.
  4. Add the garlic to the pan and red pepper flakes and saute until fragrant, about a 30 seconds.
  5. Deglaze the pan with the wine, add the heavy cream, and parmesan and cook until the parmesan melts and the sauce thickens a bit, about 3-5 minutes, before seasoning with salt and pepper to taste.
  6. Toss the pasta in with the alfredo sauce along with the shrimp, bacon and broccoli and serve garnished with parsley.

Note: Steam the broccoli by placing it in a steamer above a sauce pan with boiling water until the broccoli is tender.
Option: Make this as you like! I like to add bacon and a veggie like the broccoli, asparagus, etc. but it’s great without either!
