Creamy Shrimp and Bacon Linguini

I’m excited I had the opportunity to participate in Presto Pasta Nights this week! The round up will be at The Sweet Kitchen on Friday, Sept. 18!

Creamy Shrimp and Bacon Linguini

I love pasta dishes and I love shrimp. Put the two together with a cheesy creamy sauce, toss some green in and top with some crispy bacon – and you have an amazing dish!

The last few nights we haven’t had a real meal in the house. Grumpy is busy with studying and I’m busy being tired. ๐Ÿ˜‰ Yesterday, just before I was ready to leave my office I received a phone call from Grumpy. He wanted to know what was for dinner – he was hungry. I guess you would be too if you hadn’t been fed for 2 days. lol. Hmm, hope he doesn’t read this. I’ll have to hear “your slackin” again!

Creamy Shrimp and Bacon Linguini

The recipe is called Creamy Fettuccine with Shrimp and Bacon. I used linguine since I didn’t have fettuccine….still, tasted awesome. The recipe is from Cooking Light. CLICK HERE for the recipe.

    Hubby just returned from a week fishing in Alaska. He brought home smelly laundry and a cooler full of fresh salmon, halibut and shrimp! This shrimp dish looks delicious. Thanks!

    Even though we do not eat shrimp – this looks delicious and am thinking that I will make this sometime this weekend….. maybe with more bacon (oh yeah!!!!!!!).

    Thanks for sharing…. my mouth is watering!

    It is shocking that this dish could be considered light! It looks so incredibly rich.

    Shrimp and bacon in a creamy sauce. What more is there to say. Your photos (as usual) are fantastic.

    I am always trying to figure out a shrimp dish for the hubby and since I don't like it I have to rely on everyone else to say if it's delicious. I can tell by the picture that this is a good one… plus it has bacon!
