This bacon and shrimp linguini toss has been a weeknight staple in my house for nearly a decade. It has brought many smiles, full bellies and happy plates and is still the most requested pasta dish in my household. You know you’ve got a winner when picky two year old’s clean their plates and ask for seconds and thirds.
Now I wouldn’t say it is the healthiest when you think about the bacon and cheese but it definitely worth a cheat day if you are going on a low carb diet.
I have made many variations of this linguini toss, bacon no bacon, shrimp, chicken you name it, I’ve tried it. This is my go to pasta dish when I don’t know what to cook for dinner. The reason this a staple in my house is because 90% of the time I already have both the pantry items and the perishables readily available. Both the perishable and pantry items I pick up regularly to keep as staples because they are often used in many of my other recipes.
Roasted, diced tomatoes

To make this recipe vegetarian friendly substitute the chicken stock for vegetable stock. It does not take away from the flavor essence of this recipe. I often use this substitute on meatless monday.
If you are not big on shrimp or bacon, you can also substitute with chicken.
