Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Total Time

In this flavorful dish, you can adjust the amounts to suit your personal tastes...I happen to like garlic and Parmesan cheese. If you have any leftovers, you can add a little more milk and heat briefly in the microwave oven.

This was good and easy to make. I had a pound of shrimp so I used it all. I cut back on the garlic as I thought it would be too much for us. I also didn't have green onions so used onion powder. I also used 2% milk instead of whole milk as that is what I buy. I added the parmesan cheese to the sauce mixture. I doubled the sauce ingredients as I was also making mahi mahi so I topped it with the shrimp alfredo. We all enjoyed this.

This was really good. Did not have the onions and added twice the garlic. Only trouble I had was with the sauce thickening up I added a cup of cream with two table spoons of cornstarch, in addition to the cup of whole milk and teaspoon of cornstarch, it was thick just like I like it and creamy. I will make this again even without the shrimp maybe with chicken some time. Yum.

I've always hated Alfredo sauce from a jar, but the addition of heavy cream made it taste homemade. I made this exactly as stated and it was FANTASTIC!. - I'll try it with chicken next time.<br/><br/>Easy to make -- a definite keeper. Thanks!!!!
