Measuring Cups
Large Non-Stick Pan
Slotted Spoon


Cook linguine
  • Add linguine to the boiling water. Cook, stirring occasionally, until tender, 10-12 min.
  • Reserve 1/2 cup (1 cup) pasta water, then drain linguine and return to the same pot, off heat.
Cook bacon
  • Meanwhile, line a plate with paper towels.
  • Cut bacon crosswise into 1/2-inch strips. (TIP: Use kitchen shears to cut bacon with ease!)
  • Heat a large non-stick pan over medium-high heat.
  • When hot, add bacon. Cook, stirring occasionally, until crispy, 5-7 min.** (TIP: Reduce heat to medium if bacon is browning too quickly!)
  • Remove from heat. Using a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to the paper towel-lined plate. Set aside.
  • Reserve bacon fat in the pan. (NOTE: You will use the pan again in step 4.)
  • Meanwhile, drain corn.
  • Halve tomatoes.
Cook veggies
  • Heat the pan with bacon fat (from step 2) over medium.
  • When hot, add tomatoes and corn. Season with salt and pepper.
  • Cover and cook, stirring occasionally, until tomatoes soften, 3-4 min.
Make sauce
  • Add garlic puree and Cream Sauce Spice Blend to the pan with veggies. Cook, stirring often, until veggies are coated, 30 sec.
  • Add cream and 1/4 cup (1/2 cup) water. Season with pepper. Bring to a boil over high.
  • Once boiling, reduce heat to medium and cook, stirring often, until sauce thickens slightly, 2-3 min.
  • Remove from heat.
Finish and serve
  • Add spinach, sauce, half the bacon, half the Parmesan and 1 tbsp (2 tbsp) butter to the pot with linguine. Season with salt and pepper. Stir until spinach wilts, 1 min. (TIP: For a lighter sauce consistency, add reserved pasta water, 1-2 tbsp at a time, if desired.)
  • Divide linguine between bowls.
  • Sprinkle crispy shallots, remaining bacon and remaining Parmesan over top.
