Spaghetti Aglio e Olio With Bacon & Shrimps ???????????

Spaghetti Aglio e Olio is a classic Italian pasta. Aglio ~ fresh garlic, Olio ~ good oil. With just simple ingredients that you probably already have in hand, this gonna be the easiest pasta recipe you'll ever make.

I normally cook this for dinner, added some baby spinach, served as one pot dish for my family. The recipe that I'm sharing in this blog post is the basic one with just bacon and shrimps which I used to pack for my 7yo school snacks.
