Creamy Bacon and Shrimp Penna Pasta

Most of the time ,I cooked red sauce meat pasta for hubby,boring right?.He is getting tired eating red sauce meat spaghetti all the time.Furthermore,I don't dare to buy minced meat these days after heard the news of beef recalled .So,this time I like to cook something different for a change.I make my own creamy sauce..Since I have leftover egg white from baking mooncake,I might as well used it.Don't waste food,right?.


1/2 box Penna Pasta

1 cup whole milk

1/2 cup mayo

2 egg white

1/4 cup Parmesan cheese

5-6 stripe cooked bacon(prepare in advance)

10 shrimp clean and deviened

5-6 cloves minced fresh garlic

1 tbsp oil

1 stalk cilantro(chopped)


1:Cook Penna pasta as the box instruction.Sieve and set aside

2:Prepare skillet at high heat with oil,add on garlic,saute until golden brown.

3:Add in milk,mayo,Parmesan cheese,egg white and shrimp.Let the sauce boil and add in Penna and bacon.Reduced heat to medium and mix well all the ingredients with pasta.Garnish with cilantro ,ready to serve warm.


You can use any type of pasta for this sauce.If you prefer healthy creamy sauce,use reduced fat milk and reduce mayo instead replace with extra egg white.This meal is ready in less than 30 minutes.Trust me,making your own creamy sauce taste better than the one sell on supermarket shelve!!.Enjoy!
