I created this dish after trying a similar dish (made with crab) at a restaurant. It's wonderful! If you like, you can garnish with additional chopped tomato and chopped green onion. If you have the time, toasting the pine nuts will enhance the flavor.

Ingredients

  • 1 (12 ounce) package linguine pasta

  • ¼ pound bacon

  • 2 tablespoons olive oil

  • 3 cloves garlic, minced

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh oregano

  • 2 tablespoons chopped fresh basil

  • 3 roma (plum) tomatoes, seeded and chopped

  • ½ cup chopped green onions

  • 1 cup half-and-half cream

  • ¼ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese

  • ¼ cup shredded Monterey Jack cheese

  • 1 pound cooked shrimp

  • ¼ cup toasted pine nuts (Optional)

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Cook pasta in boiling water for 8 to 10 minutes, or until al dente; drain.

  2. Place bacon in a large, deep skillet. Cook over medium-high heat until evenly brown. Drain, crumble, and set aside.

  3. Heat olive oil in a large skillet over medium heat. Saute garlic, basil, and oregano in oil for 1 minute. Stir in tomatoes and green onions, and saute for 3 minutes. Add bacon, half and half, Parmesan cheese, and Monterey Jack cheese. Cook until cheese is just melted. Stir in shrimp, and cook until heated through, about 2 minutes.

  4. Serve sauce over pasta, and sprinkle with pine nuts.
