Shrimp Alfredo recipe

Alfredo is a complete crowd-pleaser with kids and adults alike! Enjoy it year-round for lunch or dinner; you canít go wrong with this Italian classic. Makes 4 servings.

Ingredients:

Alfredo sauce, recipe below
1 cup milk
½ cup water
2 tablespoons margarine
1 teaspoon Greek seasoning
¼ teaspoon black pepper
1 pound shrimp, cooked and peeled
6 ounces fettuccine pasta
Parmesan cheese

Alfredo Sauce
4 tablespoons butter
2 cups whipping cream
1 cup parmesan cheese, grated

Directions:

  1. Make the sauce: melt butter in medium saucepan over low heat. Stir in whipping cream and whisk well. Add parmesan cheese and stir until sauce thickens. Do not boil. Thicken sauce with more cheese, or thin with more cream. The sauce should generally be creamy.

  2. Combine Alfredo sauce, milk and water in a 2 quart saucepan. Add margarine, Greek seasoning, and black pepper. Bring to a boil over medium heat; reduce and simmer 3 minutes, stirring constantly. Stir in cooked shrimp and simmer until heated.

  3. Meanwhile, cook the pasta as directed on its packaging; then drain. Add the cooked pasta to shrimp in Alfredo sauce.

  4. Serve in a large bowl, with and Parmesan cheese sprinkled over top.

Alfredo can be a heavy entrée, so itís best served alongside lighter sides and drinks. Opt for light green salads and vinaigrettes, or a simple side of steamed veggies and butter. Choose a red or white according to your preference; Chardonnay, Pinot Noir, and Syrah would all be very nice.

Shrimp Alfredo Review by Jack Parnell on August 5th, 2012:

Really nice. If you don't know what Greek seasoning and/or can't find it anywhere, it is just a mixture of various herbs and spices - Italian seasoning or just mixed herbs are suitable subsitutions.

I love the fact it whipped up so quickly, I really didn't feel like cooking until I saw this and it looked good. It was very good, thank you.
