Ingredients

  • 16 oz linguine uncooked
  • 5 strips bacon chopped
  • 4 tbsp butter unsalted
  • 1 medium onion chopped
  • 5 cloves garlic finely minced
  • 1/2 cup white wine (I used chardonnay)
  • 1 tbsp hot sauce or to taste
  • 2 tbsp lemon juice freshly squeezed
  • 1/2 tsp salt or to taste
  • 1/2 tsp black pepper or to taste
  • 1 lb shrimp deveined and deshelled
  • 1/2 cup cherry tomatoes quartered
  • 5 green onions
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese freshly grated

Instructions

  • Cook the linguine according to package instructions. 
  • In a large skillet, fry the bacon until crisp. Transfer the bacon to a plate lined with paper towels. Drain the fat.
  • Add the butter to the skillet and melt. Stir in the onion and garlic and cook for about 3 to 5 minutes until the onion is soft and translucent.
  • Stir in the white wine, hot sauce, lemon juice, salt and pepper. Add the shrimp and cook for a couple minutes until the shrimp is no longer pink turning the shrimp half way so that it cooks on both sides.
  • Add the cooked linguini to the pot. Add tomatoes, chopped bacon, and green onions. Toss everything together well.
  • Garnish with freshly grated Parmesan cheese and serve warm.
