Spaghetti di Gamberi e Pancetta Recipe


This bacon and shrimp pasta dish is one of my favorites and a perfect quarantine dinner.

It combines all the greats into one dish with a heavy dose of garlic, tasty shrimp and flavorful pancetta or bacon...all combined with a creamy and cheesy sauce that matches well with all the flavors.





This is very easy to make and takes less than 30 minutes from prep to plate!

Give it a try on your own and let me know how it goes!



Servings: 4

Total Time: 20 minutes




Ingredients:


  • 1 lb. medium shrimp (peeled and deveined)
  • 6 slices pancetta or bacon
  • 1 head of garlic, minced
  • 1 tsp. red pepper flakes
  • 1/2 tsp. thyme
  • 1 1/2 cups heavy cream
  • 1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan
  • 12 oz. cooked whole wheat spaghetti
  • Black pepper to taste
  • Parsley for garnish

Instructions:

  1. Peel and chop a full head of garlic
  2. Boil salted water and cook the spaghetti, drain and set aside
  3. Heat a large skillet
  4. Take peeled and deveined shrimp and mix in a bowl with thyme, black pepper and the red pepper flakes
  5. Add the pancetta or bacon to the skillet and cook until crispy (7-10 minutes depending on thickness)
  6. Remove the bacon from the pan and set aside, keeping the bacon fat in the pan
  7. Add garlic to the skillet and cook for 2 minutes, then adding the shrimp and cook until slightly pink (approximately 2 more minutes)
  8. While the shrimp is cooking, cut the cooked bacon (avoid fully chopping it as you want some texture to be able to hold the completed sauce)
  9. Remove shrimp from the pan and set aside
  10. Add heavy cream and Parmesan and simmer for 1-3 minutes until reaching your preferred sauce texture thickness
  11. Remove from heat
  12. Add the cooked shrimp, bacon and spaghetti to the skillet
  13. Mix all ingredients, keeping some of the bacon and shrimp on top as an additional garnish
  14. Garnish with fresh cut parsley and additional cheese and serve
