fresh mushrooms, sliced
medium shrimp - peeled, deveined and cooked
grated Parmesan cheese
dry fettuccine pasta
I subbed half and half for the cream and it still thickened up nicely with the addition of the parmesan. Also added a little white pepper and salt.
maybe i did it wrong
Made this for dinner last night and what a hit it was. As easy as this was, I will never used jarred sauces again. I had leftover shrimp from shrimp scampi which went perfectly with the sauce. My only addition was to add some fresh cracked pepper, a pinch of salt and garnish with a little chopped Italian parsley before serving.
This is a great fettucine alfredo recipe. I hardly changed anything. I switch swiss cheese for the parmesan just because I didn't have any on hand. I did add pepper, parsley, and garlic to the sauce. Having said this I would like to point out something I didn't understand in the recipe. Why would you add cooked shrimp and then cook it for 15 min. I really think that if you followed this part of the recipe you would end up with bad shrimp. Don't add the shrimp until after you have cooked the sause for 15 min and then just heat them through. Very simple, easy tasty recipe.
Mmmm, this hit the spot! I added a tsp of flour to thicken and some garlic powder. Yummy........
Excellent recipe. Used 1 lb of fettucine, skipped the mushrooms, used 3/4 lb of shrimp & added a couple cloves of minced garlic & some parsley. Almost had to wrestle it away from my BF! Awesome.
I put my 1/2 stick butter in the pan and a few T of flour to make a rouix then whisked in half and half instead of heavy cream; added some garlic powder and salt, pepper and onion powder and a jar of mushrooms... I didn't have any fettucine so I used mini farfalle; I think they meant to use raw shrimp since the directions have you cook so long but I added my cooked shrimp during last few minutes and just heated until they were hot. Sprinkled in some fresh parsley and parmesan cheese! Thanks
Very easy...very quick....very good! I really enjoyed this recipe. I made mine with angel hair pasta and 5 cheese garlic bread and it was really good. I sauteed my shrimp in butter and garlc for just a few seconds, long enough to turn pink, set aside until the last 5 minutes on the sauce, then iI added the shrimp and they turned out great. Not over cooked, or chewy. Thank you so much for sharing this recipe!!!!!

Adding shrimp to this fettuccine makes it an elegant entree.
Alfredo sauce gets a kick with cayenne pepper, cheese, and cream.
Make elegant but easy garlic shrimp in a white wine and butter sauce.
