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.Print Friendly and PDF
