In a large skillet, on medium low heat, cooked the bacon until cooked and golden brown.  Once it’s cooked, place it on paper towels to drain the excess fat.

After 15 minutes, now add in the shrimp into the pot with the tomatoes,  and cook for about 5 minutes or until the shrimp is cooked. The shrimp will release some liquid while it cooks, but if you want a more liquidy kind of pasta, feel free to add another half a cup of water, or half a cup of white whine or if you prefer a creamier pasta, feel free to add half a cup of heavy cream.

Cook until the shrimp is well cooked, then add in the pasta, toss everything together, until the pasta is well combined with the rest of the ingredients, and continue to cook for about a minute or two, just so the pasta will absorb all the flavors in the skillet.
