1/2 Photos of Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo over Spinach Noodles
This was the only dish my father ever made, but it was so rich tasting, he fooled everyone into thinking he could cook! His trick was a bit of blue cheese in the alfredo sauce. I prefer shrimp in this dish, but chicken would work as well. If you opt for shrimp, use jumbo large shrimp so that they can stand-up against this thick sauce and spinach noodles. This dish is fairly simple with few ingredients... but make sure that your serving dishes, tools and ingredients are prepped beforehand in order to help with fast timing. Shrimp and fresh pasta are easy to over-cook (Or is that just me?).
