Happy Sunday! Today was a pretty lazy day. We all slept in, went to the grocery store (been a long time, so our cart was overflowing), watched TV, played, and read. I cooked this yummy dinner.
I knew I wanted to make some kind of shrimp pasta possibly with Alfredo sauce. This was not your ordinary pasta Alfredo. I hope you give it a try one night!
Spaghetti Alfredo with Shrimp, Bacon, and Veggies
1/2 onion, chopped
4 cloves garlic, crushed and minced
1 head of broccoli, just the florets
1 container of mushrooms, sliced
6 sliced of bacon, cooked and chopped
1 pound of shrimp- peeled and deveined
1 container of Alfredo sauce or make your own- https://funfoodiefamily.com/2013/09/02/shrimp-and-broccoli-angel-hair-alfredo/
butter, 1/2 stick
olive oil, 1/2 cup
salt and pepper to taste
Heat a large skillet and cook your bacon. Once done, set aside and drain on a plate with paper towels to soak up oil.
Add a table spoon of butter to your bacon fat. Cook your chopped onion on med.-low heat until soft, about 5-6 minutes. Add your garlic and cook about 3 minutes more. Add your broccoli and mushrooms. Add a few more turns of olive oil. Add some salt and pepper. Cook down about 15 minutes or so. I like the broccoli to still have a bite to it and be bright green. Cook to your preference. Season to your preference. Add your Alfredo sauce and combine. Turn to low.
Meanwhile, Bring salted water to a boil and cook your pasta.
Saute your shrimp in another pan. Cook about 4 minutes and add to your sauce. Add the pasta to the sauce. Add a bit of starchy pasta water if needed. Mix to combine. Chop bacon and add on top. Perfection!!!! Teach cute little shrimp lovers how to take off the tails!
