I love pasta! I seem to be always making pasta dishes once or twice a week for dinner for me & my other half. My favorite pasta dish would have to be alfredo! I am always trying new alfredo sauces all of the time. I know that I love mixing some shrimp or even chicken along with the alfredo sauce as well as it gives it a little something each time! I enclosed below a dish that I love to make for my other half & me. And that we both end up enjoying each time it is made as well. I hope if you try this recipe that you enjoy it as much as we do around our household! . . Thanks for allowing me to share! xx "Shrimp Alfredo." Ingredients are as follows: - 1 pound of large shrimp, without shells on ends - 1/4 of a teaspoon of minced garlic - 1/4 of a cup of butter - 4 large egg yolks - 1/2 of a pound of fettuccine noodles, all cooked - 1 cup of half & half or 1 carton of whipping cream - 1/2 of a cup of grated parmesan cheese - 2 teaspoons of minced parsley (optional) Directions are as follows: - In a large skillet, cook the shrimp in the garlic butter over medium heat. Stir for 3 - 4 minutes or until the shrimp has begun to be firm to the touch. - Reduce the heat to low & then stir in the fettuccine. Then in a bowl, beat together the yolks along with the half & half, as well as the parmesan. - Then add the egg mixture you had created to the shrimp mixture & cook this until the sauce has begun to thicken. Then toss all the while so that the egg doesn't curdle. Do this for about 3 - 4 minutes. - Make sure to keep in mind that the sauce doesn't come to a boil. After this stir in the parsley along with some salt & pepper just to taste. Serve with garlic toast & sprinkle some more parmesan cheese on top if desired. Serve & ENJOY this delicious dish!
