Angel Hair pasta

2 lbs                 Shrimp (16-20 size)

2 tbsp              Olive oil

8 slices            Bacon (diced)

1 cup               White onion

8 to 16 oz.       Artichoke hearts (optional)

2 tbsp              Minced garlic

3/4 cup            White wine

2 tbsp              Fresh parsley

Salt & Pepper

1 tsp                Crushed red pepper flakes

4                      Roma tomatoes

2 tbsp              Fresh basil

Parmesan cheese to top


Cook bacon in pan until almost done, move to side of pan and add olive oil and garlic.

Add onion and mix with everything in the pan. If you want artichoke hearts, add them after onion is translucent.

Add ½ cup white wine (save the ¼ for later), salt, pepper, red pepper flakes, and basil. Bring back up to medium/high heat then add the shrimp.

Cook until shrimp are done then add tomatoes, remaining wine and parsley. Heat just enough so that the wine and tomatoes can come up to temperature.

Serve over pasta and garnish with parmesan.

Tip: You can also make this a cream sauce if you wish by adding a cup of heavy cream.
