Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

"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."

    Why can't recipe ingredients be listed in the order that they appear in the recipe instructions?

    Can the sauce be refrigerated and used later and for how long?

    I found this recipe to be too light. If you want fettuccini Alfredo, use whole fat cream and butter. NO cornstarch. It’s a treat so don’t mess with the whole ingredients.

    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 a good dish. However the sauce never thickened so I had to double the amount of cornstarch. I also added a small handful of parmesean cheese to the sauce , a little crushed red pepper , and fresh baby spinach. Came out great. We will make again. Yum

    I had some leftover gambas al ajillo #127029 and needed to make some quick dinner so I used it in this recipe. I like garlic so I used the recommended amount plus what was still in the sauce from the shrimp! Wow this was really very good. I did double the cornstarch as some reviewers had suggested and it was perfect. Thank you for posting Mmers.

    Finally an Alfredo that is so easy I couldn't mess it up! Simple and really tasty. I doubled the recipe and added mushrooms. Also my teaspoons of cornstarch were heaping. It got thick but not very thick so I added the cooked pasta to the sauce and it thickened up quite nicely. Oh and I used minced onions instead of scallions since the hubby hates scallions. Thank you!

    Excellent recipe. I used 2% milk and used onion powder and dried chives instead of the green onions (I didnt have any). I have made this twice already and will be making it again soon. Thank you for sharing!

    Very easy and very good! I only had heavy cream so I subbed it for the milk with cornstarch. Very tasty. i liked the green onions!

    For all my doubts before adding the sauce to the noodles, this recipe turned out great! I had to substitute the milk for a water/heavy whipping cream combo, and the cornstarch for a few tablespoons of flour, but in the end my roommate and I loved it. If you like garlic like I do, I would add at least 4 more cloves because I could hardly taste it through the parmesan.

I'm a small animal veterinary technician working full time. In my spare (?) time I love to bake and cook. I have about 80 different cookbooks and I guess my favorite ones are those that involve CHOCOLATE!! <br> <br>My biggest 'pet' peeve is people who treat their dogs and cats like disposable products...look after the health and well-being of your pets, PLEASE! They depend on you! ('Nuff said!). <br> <br>June 2003 Update: I now work part-time as a vet tech and part-time as an ER ward clerk at a local hospital. After being a technician for 20 years, the emotional stress was getting too hard to handle. Putting an older pet to sleep after I'd watched them grow up over the years was something I could no longer do. I decided to look for a new job while I was still 40-something rather than wait 4 years when I was 50-something! Working with animals is in my blood however, so I could not give it up entirely.
