I love it when I find a new recipe that's easy to make and tastes delicious. I found this "Creamy Shrimp Alfredo Pasta" today when I was browsing - the original recipewas found on NatashasKitchen.com I thank her for posting this tasty recipe!!
Creamy Shrimp Alfredo Pasta
Fettucine or Penne Pasta
Shrimp - I used 10 large shrimp for the two of us
1 tbsp. oil
1 small onion, finely chopped
2 tbsp. butter
1 garlic clove
1/3 cup white wine
2 cups heavy whipping cream
1/3 cup parmesan cheese
Salt & Pepper, to taste
Sprinkle of Paprika
Parsley or basil for garnish
Lightly season shrimp with salt, pepper and paprika. Preheat large skillet to med/high and add 1 tbsp. oil. Add shrimp and cook 1-2 minutes per side, do not overcook. Remove shrimp to a bowl.
I started cooking the fettucine after the first step. Drain when cooked, do not rinse.
In your same frying pan, over medium/high heat, add 2 tbsp. butter, cook onion, stir in garlic and cook together. Stir in 1/3 cup white wine and reduce to 25%, scraping the bottom to deglaze the pan.
Stir in cream and simmer for 2 minutes. Sprinkle the top with 1/3 cup parmesan and stir until creamy and smooth. Add 1/4 tsp. paprika and season with salt and pepper.
Turn off heat and add cooked shrimp and pasta to the frying pan. Garnish with parsley or basil.
This is a definite winner, I've pinned it for future use!
