This turned out good but I would make some changes next time. First, I would double the sauce. This just didn't make enough for our taste. Second, I would sautee the shrimp separately in olive oil with minced garlic and add it into the sauce just before serving. Cooking the shrimp in the sauce made the whole thing taste a little too shrimpy, and the shrimp was a little overcooked. Other than those small changes, this is a good dish.

I don't know what I'm missing here... I put only 1 tsp of black pepper and it was still pretty spicy to me. Maybe everyone else out there loves extremely spicy dish?

This is a very good shrimp alfredo recipe. I would recommend removing the shrimp from the pan once it's cooked through, and then add the half and half to the pan to thicken. Otherwise, the shrimp can become overcooked and tough. Just add the shrimp back to the sauce once it's thickened. Overall, very good. I've made it twice, and the second time, added some steamed broccoli to the dish.

Made some changes: 1. With the onions I added a red bell pepper, mushrooms, and just used an entire whole white onion. 2. Didn't use any butter. Just sprayed some oil into the pan. 3. I added 1/4 cup white wine in with the shrimp. 4. I added a pinch of red pepper flakes, and just put the black pepper and parmesan right into the sauce. I only used maybe 1/2 of the black pepper it calls for, if that. Add some and then taste as it's all person preference. 5. Used about 1 and 1/2 tablespoons of corn starch to thicken sauce. With those modifications it came out delicious! For even less fat try using homo milk and then just add a little more corn starch at the end. Enjoy

After some personal tweaking...this was delicious! DON'T overcook the shrimp. Fry it in the butter/onion/garlic until just cooked. Set aside. Pour 1 cup half and half, 1 half cup white wine and 1 tbsp of lemon juice into pan and stir constantly. (This heats up fast so keep stirring!) Add parmesan cheese to sauce as you are stirring(constantly!). Pour over cooked pasta, garnish.

This was very good but I made a few slight changes. I used !/2 cup butter, omitted onions as my hubby don't like them, used the 4 tsp. garlic, 2 cups half n half only 1 tsp. pepper, 12 T fresh grated parmesan, instead of parsely sprigs , I used some dried parsely from my spices. Used frozen shrimp and added a can of crab meat. I cooked shrimp in butter till thawed and removed from pan. Then added my cream and cheese. To thicken a bit I used about 2 T cornsarch mixed with a tad of water until it was the consistency I like. Then added my shrimp and crab and gently heated. It made a nice amount of sauce so it wasn't dry. Everyone loved it! I imagine everyone could make this to their liking. It's a great recipe! Thanks!

Great recipe. I took other members advise and added more garlic, basil, white wine and parmesan to the sauce.I also cooked the shrimp and then set it aside and made the sauce on its own. I added a tsp cornstarch and then put the shrimp back in the sauce for 1 minute.

my bf thought this was fabulous. i liked it but we both agreed it was missing something. i used cream instead of half and half. the sauce was pretty thin so we dumped a whole lot of parmesan cheese into the sauce until it thickened up. the next time i make this ill add more garlic since that flavor seemed to be lacking.
