Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo
What you'll need:
- 1 box of fettuccine pasta
- 1 cup of shrimp (peeled & cooked)
- 1 1/2 jars of Bertolli Alfredo sauce
- 2 cloves of garlic (minced)
- 1/2 cup of half and half
- 1/2 teaspoon of butter
- Preferred seasonings (salt, pepper, basil)
First, bring a large pot of water to a boil and add your fettuccine pasta noodles (lightly salt the pot for taste and to prevent sticking). Once the water is boiling, turn your stove to medium-low heat and allow the pasta to simmer for 10 minutes. Once they are soft, remove them from the heat and drain any excess water.
Cook your shrimp, along with minced garlic (2 cloves worth) and 1/2 teaspoon of butter in a separate pan until the shrimp becomes a rich pink color. I season my shrimp with a dash of salt, chili powder, and basil. Cooking your shrimp should only take a few minutes.
After you’ve drained the excess water from your pot, add in 1/2 cup of half and half, 1 1/2 jars of Alfredo sauce (I use Bertolli - you may need to use 2 or more jars depending on how much you’re making), and your shrimp. Stir thoroughly, making sure your sauce covers and coats all of your noodles. Add some cracked pepper on top, and parmesan cheese (if desired).
This also tastes great with freshly chopped parsley on top, or you can pair it with a side of toasted garlic bread or breadsticks.
