Ingredients

Nutrition
  • 12 cup butter (1 stick)
  • 34 cup cream cheese (1 package)
  • 34 cup half-and-half cream
  • 1 -2 pinch garlic salt (or to taste)
  • 1 -2 pinch lemon pepper (or to Taste)
  • 1 (16 ounce) package fettuccine
  • 10 -12 whole baby carrots (optional)
  • 2 stalks fresh broccoli (just the Florretts) (optional)
  • 1 yellow squash, Sliced (optional)
  • 20 large pre- cooked shrimp, thawed (optional)

Directions

  1. Bring a large pot of water with a pinch of salt to a rolling boil.
  2. In the meantime, melt butter & cream cheese in half & half in a small sauce pan on medium heat stirring constantly. This could be done in a microwave as well. Whisk until smooth and creamy. Add garlic and lemon pepper.
  3. Cook fettucine according to the directions on the box & combine with sauce.
  4. For a nice kick, add shrimp or grilled chicken slices. I usually add steamed broccoli florrets, yellow squash slices and baby carrots too.
  5. Searve with your favorite wine and garlic bread. Enjoy!
  6. Hint: A salad spinner works really well for drying your freshly washed veggies and thawed shrimp.
