Shrimp Bacon Spinach Pasta in a Cream Sauce.

I love bacon and I love shrimp! Recently, I ran a half marathon and the night before I wanted to “carb load” but didn’t want to feel guilty about what I was eating. I remember seeing a recipe on Facebook posted by Tasty for a Shrimp Spinach Bacon Alfredo. I thought to myself “self this sounds good why don’t I make it but with a few changes to lighten it up.” So that’s what I did! Thanks Tasty! 😋
