Easy 30 Minute Cheesy Garlic Shrimp Alfredo

This Shrimp Alfredo is A cheesy, garlick-y delicious pasta packed with shrimp, and an easy homemade Alfredo. Great weeknight dinner! This easy shrimp Alfredo pasta is a family favorite for a reason.


Ingredients:


  • 2 cups 2% milk
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 3 Tbs butter
  • 3 Tbs minced garlic
  • 2 Tbs flour
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1 lb peeled and deveined shrimp
  • 1 cup grated Mozzarella cheese or 3 cheese blend
  • 1/3 cup parmesan cheese optional
  • Pepper to taste
  • Parsley to garnish


Instructions:


  1. Using a hand mixer or blender, mix together the milk, cream cheese, flour, and salt until smooth, set aside
  2. In a saucepan, melt butter and add garlic. Saute garlic for about a minute, then add in peeled and deveined shrimp
  3. Cook 3-5 minutes, until pink, and just barely cooked through
  4. Remove shrimp from pan, leave garlic and butter drippings in saucepan
  5. Add milk mixture to the pan, and stir for 4 minutes on medium heat. Bring to a simmer, and keep stirring for about 6 more minutes until is starts to thicken.
  6. Remove from heat, add grated cheese and Parmesan
  7. Cover, let stand for about 5 minutes.
  8. Add shrimp into sauce and let stand another 5 minutes
  9. Serve over noodles of choice, I chose fettuccine. (1 lb package is sufficient)
  10. Garnish with some dried parsley


NOTES:

  • Rinse your shrimp well in a colander before cooking so you don’t get a “fishy” taste in your sauce.
  • Stir the garlic so it doesn’t burn. If it gets too brown it will be bitter.
  • Keep stirring when you pour the milk mixture in, you don’t want it to burn.
  • Use a heavy bottomed pot to help reduce the likelihood of scorched milk.
  • If you don’t eat all of it in one sitting, when reheating add milk to get to the desired consistency as it will get thicker!
