  1. Bring a large pot of lightly salted water to a boil. Add pasta and cook for 8 to 10 minutes or until al dente; drain.
  2. In a large skillet, cook and stir shrimp and garlic in the butter for about one minute. Pour in half and half; stir. Sprinkle Parmesan cheese in one tablespoon at a time, stirring constantly. After all Parmesan is added, mix in parsley and salt. Stir frequently making sure it does not boil. Sauce will take a while to thicken.
  3. When sauce has thickened, combine with cooked pasta noodles; serve hot.

Wonderful! Very easy to make, too. Because the recipe calls for cooked shrimp, I think next time I will add them at the very end -- by the time the sauce thickened, the shrimp were overcooked. I added 1/2 tsp. salt, and although pepper wasn't called for, I added 1/4 tsp. pepper - would keep those additions the same next time. I also used fat-free half-and-half + 1 1/2 Tbl. cornstarch to thicken. Thanks for the recipe!

after adding the half & half I stirred a good half hour it wasn't getting thick. After turning off the heat it started to thicken. OTHER WISE THE RECEIPE WAS DELICIOUS WHAT IS THE SECRET FOR MAKING ALFREDO SAUCE

Made this last night, but changed a few things, added saute mushrooms, which I added 6 chopped cloves of garlic, fresh parsley, before adding it to the sauce, also used 1 cup grated cheese and half and half. Added shrimp last just before sauce thickened. It was so good hubby asked me to make it again soon! A keeper!

This was very good and quick! I doubled the parmesan cheese and added chopped broccoli. If your sauce takes too long to thicken, remove from heat. It thickened in 2 minutes off the heat. This is a keeper!

Luckily, I listened to another reviewer's advice; 1lb of noodles is way too much! I used only half of the package for the amount of sauce made. Also, I made sure to remove the shrimp before making the sauce to avoid it being overcooked. It was delish!

I made this for my mom's birhtday and everyone loved it, all 15 guests!!! I took the advise of others and doubled the ingredients for the sauce and added the shrimp at the end so it wouldn't be overcooked. I'll definetely keep making this instead of buying canned alfredo sauce!

This recipe is so simple and produces a great meal. I didn't add cornstarch or flower; instead I simply reduced the sauce until the consistency was right. It too an additional 20 minutes, but it was worth it!

Excellent recipe! Of all the search results that came up for this dish, I chose this one because it had the best nutritional data. It was VERY easy and quick to prepare but most of all, had GREAT (resturant quality)flavor. I will definitely add it to my list of personal favorites.
