Shrimp Alfredo Recipe Ingredients

1 pound dried fettuccine

4 tablespoons (1⁄2 stick) unsalted butter

1 pound small shrimp (more than 55 per pound), peeled and deveined

1 cup heavy cream

3⁄4 cup coarsely grated Parmigiano-Reggiano (about 3 ounces)
Salt and freshly ground black pepper to taste

Shrimp Alfredo Recipe Cooking Description

1.Bring 6 quarts salted water to boil in a large pot over high heat. Add the pasta and cook according to the package directions until al dente, usually 6 to 8 minutes.

2.Meanwhile, in a saucepan large enough to cook the shrimp and eventually hold the pasta, melt the butter over medium heat.

3.Add the shrimp and stir to coat them with butter. Add the cream and bring it to a simmer. Cook, stirring frequently, until the shrimp are pink and the cream is slightly thickened, about 3 minutes. Turn off the heat.

4.Drain the pasta and add it to the pan with the shrimp. Turn the heat to medium and cook, stirring and tossing, until the sauce is bubbling and the pasta is well coated.

5.Add the cheese and continue tossing until the cheese is melted and the sauce is smooth, about 1 minute. Add the salt and pepper. Serve immediately.Shrimp Alfredo Recipe
