Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo is a classic Italian-American pasta dish featuring tender shrimp in a creamy Alfredo sauce served over fettuccine noodles.

Here’s a recipe to make it at home: Ingredients: 1 pound fettuccine pasta 1 pound large shrimp, peeled and deveined 4 tablespoons unsalted butter 4 cloves garlic, minced 1 cup heavy cream 1 cup grated Parmesan cheese, plus extra for serving Salt and pepper to taste Chopped fresh parsley for garnish (optional)

Instructions: Cook the fettuccine pasta according to the package instructions in a large pot of salted boiling water until al dente. Drain the pasta, reserving about 1/2 cup of the pasta cooking water, and set aside. While the pasta is cooking, season the shrimp with salt and pepper. In a large skillet or saucepan, melt the butter over medium heat. Add the minced garlic and sauté for about 1 minute until fragrant, being careful not to burn it. Add the seasoned shrimp to the skillet and cook for 2-3 minutes on each side until pink and cooked through. Remove the shrimp from the skillet and set aside.

In the same skillet, pour in the heavy cream and bring it to a simmer over medium heat. Allow it to cook for about 2-3 minutes, stirring occasionally.

Gradually whisk in the grated Parmesan cheese until it’s fully melted and the sauce is smooth and creamy. If the sauce is too thick, you can add some of the reserved pasta cooking water to thin it out to your desired consistency. Return the cooked shrimp to the skillet with the Alfredo sauce and toss to coat evenly.

Add the cooked fettuccine pasta to the skillet with the shrimp and Alfredo sauce. Toss everything together until the pasta is well coated with the sauce. Taste and adjust the seasoning with salt and pepper if needed. Serve the shrimp fettuccine Alfredo hot, garnished with chopped fresh parsley and extra grated Parmesan cheese if desired. Enjoy your homemade shrimp fettuccine Alfredo! It’s a decadent and satisfying pasta dish perfect for any occasion.
