Carbonara Shrimp Alfredo with Bacon

Ingredients:

2 teaspoons olive oil
4 oz (120 g) diced bacon
1 small onion
6 cloves garlic minced
1 pound (500 grams) shrimp, tails on or off
1 1/4 cups heavy cream (half and half or evaporated milk)
1/2 cup fresh grated Parmesan cheese
Salt and pepper, to taste
1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley

Directions:

Heat oil a large skillet over medium-high heat. Fry the bacon until crispy. Drain off some excess fat, keeping about 1 teaspoons worth in the pan. Add the onion and garlic and fry until onion is transparent (about 1 minute).
Reduce heat to low. Add shrimp and let cook for 1 minute, while stirring occasionally.
Pour in half and half (or cream) and add in parmesan cheese. Bring the sauce to a gentle simmer for 1 minute. Season with a little salt and pepper to your taste and let cook until the parmesan cheese has melted, the shrimp are cooked through and the sauce has thickened slightly.
Top with parsley, taste test sauce and adjust salt and pepper, if needed.
Serve over pasta, rice, steamed veg, mashed potatoes, cauliflower rice or zucchini noodles.
