    Marie's Note:

    Made this for dinner last night and it was out of this world fantastic! I think it took me all of 20 minutes to put it on the table. A very easy simple recipe that mimics the finest comparable restaurant dish.

      This will be my go to alfredo recipe from now on. Came out perfect and was so fast and simple. I only gave 4 stars b/c I did change a couple things. I used 1/2 lb. pasta and halved rest of ingredients except garlic and cheese. I also subbed 1/4 tsp. dried italian seasoning for the parsley as I didn't have any and added a splash of white wine. Also marinated the shrimp briefly in lemon juice, salt, pepper, garlic powder, zinfandel, cayenne and seafood seasoning which gave it great flavor. This dish tastes great w/ fresh pepper and a little more cheese on top.

      Thanks, Marie. This was a delicious dinner. And really quick. I made as written except that I used already cooked, medium size shrimp. I just put them in the sauce at the last minute to warm. And I added a touch of sherry. HE really liked it. I'll make this again! . . . Janet
