Shrimp Fettuccini Alfredo

This is cheesy buttery goodness!!  Definitely, a high fat and calorie dinner.  I love to indulge in thick creamy pasta every now and then.  Fettuccini Alfredo has always been one of my favorite dishes of all time.  Its easy, fast, and fairly inexpensive.  As much as my husbands claims to not like pasta, he sure does ask for it a lot.

  • 1 box fettuccini noodles
  • 1 pint heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 cup Parmesan cheese
  • 1 lb shrimp, peeled and deveined
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 3 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons flour
  • salt and pepper, to taste

Directions:  Boil noodles according to package directions.  In a large skillet melt 1 tablespoon butter and add garlic and shrimp.  Cook until shrimp is pink.  Remove shrimp and set aside. Melt remaining butter in skillet and add flour, stirring constantly.  Once you have a rue slowly whisk in cream and cheese.  Season sauce with salt and pepper and add shrimp. Toss noodles in sauce and serve!
