Fettuccine Alfredo is my kryptonite. I love it and it’s even better when it includes shrimp. I recently made this easy shrimp alfredo for a birthday dinner for my daughter-in-law. She loves fettuccine alfredo and shrimp as much as I do.
This all comes together in about 30 minutes. You need to cook the pasta, cook the shrimp, and make the sauce. The most time and energy is used making the sauce.
The base of the sauce is made with garlic, butter, flour, and whipping cream. Parmesan cheese is also mixed in for flavor and it helps to thicken the sauce. There is also sour cream added. The sour cream adds thickeness to the sauce along with creaminess and a slight tang.
Shrimp cooks fast and all you need is a little butter, salt and pepper to cook the shrimp with. You can toss the shrimp in with the pasta and sauce. However, I prefer to just toss the pasta with the sauce and place the shrimp on a bed of the coated pasta.
