Easy Shrimp Alfredo

I made the easiest and most delicious dinner two nights ago and we finished the leftovers last night. It was a simple shrimp alfredo dish that anyone can make, but it looks and tastes like spent hours. My kids really love this dish and hope yours will too.

1 lb. raw shrimp, shelled and deviened
2 T olive oil
4 cloves garlic, minced
2 T dried parsley

Cook the shrimp over medium high heat in a large pan on the stove in the oil with the garlic and parsley. It will only take about 2 minutes. Remove to a platter or bowl. In the same pan melt;

1/2 stick butter
8 oz. cream cheese, cubed
1 1/2 c milk or light cream
1/2 - 3/4 c parmesan or mozzarella if you are out of parmesan

Whisk smooth. Add the shrimp and immediately pour over prepared hot pasta of your choice. I like to use about 16 oz. pasta and while it's boiling I add a 10 oz. package of broccoli to the boiling water and then cook the veggies with the pasta!

Serve with garlic bread. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

    We are huge fans of shrimp alfredo in my house. Once I saw this recipe and that it included cream cheese I knew I had to try it. My 2 food favorites, shrimp and cream cheese, I couldn't make it fast enough. The only thing I did different was added more garlic and left out the broccoli. This has to be one of the best alfredo sauces I have ever had. This includes fancy italian restaurants too, not just homemade. WOW!!

    Plus all I had to buy was shrimp and cream cheese, we had everything else. In the kitchen.

    Thanks for posting!
