Shrimp with Garlic Parmesan Sauce

This is a recipe that I had in my head but couldn't find an exact recipe online. That's when you know it's time to just grab some ideas and mesh them together. I was really happy with this dish and it has a great flavor. The kids both loved it and Hubby said he liked it so it's going in the dinner rotation.

Shrimp with Garlic Parmesan Sauce
Adapted from

8 cloves garlic chopped
12 jumbo shrimp, peeled and deveined if needed
2 T olive oil
1 1/2 C heavy cream
2 T parsely
1/2 C grated parmesan cheese
1 medium tomato, chopped
4-6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
8 oz GF pasta, cooked and drained
salt & pepper to taste

Bring water in a medium saucepan to a boil and add the shrimp. Cook 2-3 minutes or until cooked or heated through if you're using pre-cooked shrimp. Drain and set to the side.

Cook the pasta according to the package while doing the next steps. Heat the oil over medium heat and add the garlic. Cook for about 1 minute then pour in the heavy cream and bring to a simmer. Stir frequently until it thickens, it took about 8-10 minutes for me. Stir in the salt, pepper, parsley, and parmesan until combined. Add the shrimp and bacon and stir until combined.
To serve put pasta on a plate and top with the sauce. Garnish with tomoatoes.
