A note about serious food allergies

Looking for a bowl brimming with luxurious, comforting, and satisfying flavors? Our take on Italian carbonara is resplendent with plump shrimp, smoky bacon, farm peas, and a warm, toasted baguette to dredge through the rich and creamy Parmesan sauce. As the Italians would say, the "abbondanza" is strong with this one.

    Bring a medium pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Put a colander in the sink. Throughly rinse produce and pat dry. Cut green onion into thinly on a bias, separating the white and green parts. Mince garlic. Slice baguette in half lengthwise. Slice bacon across its length into ⅓" wide pieces. Rinse shrimp, pat dry, and season with a pinch of salt and pepper.

    Toast the Bread

    Warm a medium pan over medium-high heat. Add 1 tsp. olive oil and sliced baguette (cut side down). Cook until bread is golden brown, about 3-5 minutes. Transfer bread to a cutting board and cut diagonally into triangles. Wipe pan clean and return pan to medium-high heat.

    Make the Sauce

    Add bacon to same pan used for bread and cook for 8 minutes over medium-high heat, or until crisp. Drain bacon fat from pan, leaving 1 tsp. behind. Add shrimp and sear on each side for 1 minute. Transfer to a plate and set aside. Add garlic and white parts of green onions to pan and cook for 30 seconds. Add evaporated milk and cook for 4 minutes. Add peas, half the Parmesan, and seared shrimp to pan and cook for 4 minutes, or until sauce is slightly thickened. Add butter to pan and stir to incorporate. Season to taste with salt and pepper.
