I love carbonara and love shrimp.
Make and share this Nymphadora's Shrimp Carbonara recipe from Food.com.
- Chop bacon into bits and cook on medium high heat in a large non-stick skillet for approx 5 minutes or until nearly ready then add thawed shrimp and cook till just about done. Remove bacon and shrimp from pan and set aside.
- Add olive oil to pan and sauté shallots, garlic and mushrooms in remaining bacon grease for a couple of minutes then add wine and cook it all down.
- Add cream and thicken a bit then add back bacon and shrimp, stir in cheese.
- Toss in cooked pasta (you may not use all of it if the sauce seems too thick for it) and serve when thickened and seasoned with pepper to your taste.
I had leftover spaghetti in the fridge, so this was a perfect and easy supper for DH and I. I omitted the mushrooms since I don't particularly like them, but otherwise struck to recipe, we very much enjoyed this .. I thought I might have liked a pinch of red pepper flakes or chilli, but DH said no, perfect as is! Thank you Nymphadora Tonks (love the name ;) )
This is wonderful. It was a real treat. We all enjoyed this recipe. The taste of the bacon with the shrimps is great. I used asiago cheese. Thanks Nymphadora Tonks :) Made for PAC spring 2011
I typed in bacon, shrimp, mushrooms, & cream and this is one of the recipes that came up. It sounded great so I tried it for dinner tonight. The only change I made was I used rice instead of pasta. It was easy and it tastes great. My husband absolutely loved it. He says I should make it once a week. I won't make it that often, but I did put it in my "tried & true" cookbook. Thanks!
