Shrimp Farfalle Carbonara

Also known simply as "the pasta". This recipe is a staple in my house.

Makes four servings.



  1. Peel shrimp and marinade in olive oil and your favorite spice blend while you prepare the vegetables.
  2. Trim asparagus and cut into 1" pieces
  3. Cut red bell pepper into 1" strips
  4. Fry bacon until crispy and drain, leaving a few tablespoons of pork fat in the pan.
  5. Saute asparagus and bell pepper in bacon fat until soft.
  6. Saute shrimp.
  7. Cook farfalle until al dente.
  8. Beat egg yolks and cream.
  9. Toss farfalle, bacon, shrimp, bell pepper, asparagus, and crumbled goat cheese with the cream and egg mixture and a tablespoon or two of the pasta water over low heat until sauce begins to thicken.
  10. Top with a drizzle of extra virgin olive oil, fresh cracked black pepper, and your favorite finishing salt.
