Directions

  1. Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the fettuccine, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 8 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.
  2. Brown the bacon in a large skillet over medium heat until crisp, about 5 minutes; stir occasionally. Drain all but 1 tablespoon of the drippings; pour the olive oil into the skillet. Stir in garlic and onion, and cook until the onion becomes translucent, about 5 minutes. Stir in the shrimp, and cook just until pink and opaque, 2 to 3 more minutes. Mix in Italian seasoning, black pepper, and diced tomatoes, and cook, stirring occasionally, until the liquid has reduced by half, about 10 minutes.
  3. With a spoon, move the shrimp to the outside of the skillet. Place the spinach in the center of the skillet, cover, and cook until just wilted, 3 to 5 minutes. Stir the spinach into the shrimp. Mix in the tomato paste if you prefer a thicker sauce. Serve over cooked fettuccine.

Important information missing! How much olive oil? Not in the ingredient list, nor in the recipe! What do I do with the bacon and drippings? Leave in the skillet to burn with the shrimp? Add it sometime later? I played it by ear and got it done. Used sun-dried tomatoes, which added some nice tasty oil to th emix. It was a very pretty dish and just what I had hoped for, just frustrated by pieces missing in the posted recipe.

Instead of tomatoe sauce I used a light white sauce. It was fantastic! Great recipe; everyone loved it.

Great recipe! If you want to "skinny" it down, it's very good without the bacon (just use olive oil to cook the onion/garlic).
