portobello mushrooms, diced
medium shrimp, peeled and deveined
1 (15 ounce) jar
grated Romano cheese
cayenne pepper, or more to taste

This was really good! I did make a few minor adjustments. The family demanded that I not add the cayenne pepper. I had medium shells instead of penne so I used them. The portobellos I sliced into medium thick strips and I had a jar of roasted red bell peppers that I used instead of fresh. Everyone loved this dish! One thing to note, I have yet to find alfredo sauce that isn't salty so don't add any salt until you've tasted it just before it's ready to plate. Mine didn't need any because the salt in the alfredo sauce was enough. This recipe is a keeper! Thanks to the original poster.
Why buy alfredo ready made? Its simple to make and tastes better when home made! Now it is a five star.
Absolutely easy and fast recipe to prepare that has wonderful flavors. Even better the next day when the flavors have had a chance to marry. Used a combination of red and green bell pepper for additional color and added an additional 1/4 cup of fresh grated Parmesan cheese. Thanks Jzeller for submitting this recipe.
This was a great recipe! I made a few changes only because I didn't have all the ingredients. Instead of shrimp I cooked chicken seperately in salt and pepper and then cut into strips and served over the pasta. I used parmesan cheese instead of Romano, and added chopped spinach instead of mushrooms as I don't like mushrooms. It was absolutely delicious! My husband never goes back for seconds, but with this he went back for thirds!
Absolutely delicious. I modified the recipe a little bit (with apologies to the creator!). I cut out the oil entirely. Used 1/2 of the red pepper and onion. Used button mushrooms. Finally, I used fat free half-and-half in place of the cream. This receipe was OUTSTANDING. Hubby and son said it was as good as anything you would get in a restaurant (and I agreed). There wasn't a scrap left!
I made this recipe for my family and we all LOVED it so much!!! We all agree it is worthy of being on a menu at any wonderful Italian (or any) Restaurant! We added scallops to ours and it was DELICIOUS! I hope more people try this recipe. I printed it out and lost it... I looked through about 100 recipes before I finally found it again. (I was looking for fettuccini) THANK GOODNESS I FOUND IT! IT WILL BE TREASURED!
WE loved this recipe. Followed exactly using 1/2 and 1/2 and all e.v.o.o. The baby bellas and sweet red bell added so much to this alfredo mixture. We also used cooked thawed shrimp instead of fresh cause thats what I had. We'll be having this again!!
This was awesome. I made it two weekends in a row. The first for friends so I cut the cayenne to 1/2 tsp. Had to cook in someone elses kitchen so not perfect (looking!) but yummy. One of my friends made a comment again about it last night. Made it again for hubby tonight. He loved it! Wanted a little firmer mushroom so I used Baby Bello's and still kept the cayenne to 1/2 tsp so as not to overpower the rest of the flavors. Definately a favorite for me!
