“This is a good side dish. Bacon and corn make this a sweet and smoky combo in this creamy pasta dish. It's best if you use thick smokey bacon and corn that is in season and cut off the cob. Simple to make and delicious!!”

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. In a 6 to 8 quart pan over high heat, bring about 4 quarts of water to a boil; add shells and cook, stirring occasionally, until barely tender to bite, 8 to 10 minutes.

  3. With a slotted spoon, transfer bacon to paper towel to drain.
