Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Bring a large pot of generously salted water to a boil. Cook pasta until al dente. Reserve 1 1/2 cups pasta water; drain.

  • Meanwhile, cook bacon in a large straight-sided skillet over medium heat until most of fat is rendered but bacon is still pliable, about 4 minutes. Stir in tomato paste, rosemary, olives, and 1 tablespoon oil; cook 1 minute. Add tomatoes, season with salt and pepper, and cook until they collapse and release their juices, about 5 minutes. Add 1 cup pasta water and shrimp. Simmer, stirring occasionally, until shrimp are opaque, 2 to 3 minutes.

  • Stir in pasta and remaining 1 tablespoon oil. Add more pasta water, a few tablespoons at a time, until pasta is evenly coated. Drizzle with oil, sprinkle with cheese, and serve.

I enjoyed this. Didn't think it was spectacular. I did add one clove of garlic for half a recipe but was not blown away. Like I said, decent... I love most of what I make from Martha. This is just one to go into the "okay/decent" pile.

This is a classic Italian recipe updated for fall. The original recipe calls for five cloves of garlic sautéed in the oil and then adding the halved cheery tomatoes that are cooked until they release their juices. The remainder of the ingredients are then briefly sautéed with the former ingredients before adding the pasta water. Works better.
