Shrimp Alfredo Pasta

We make Alfredo Pasta every single week at our house. It is one thing that I can count on my kids eating every week. My eleven year old son actually makes it for us and has it memorized. I am always trying to figure out different pasta to serve it with and different proteins to add into it. And this shrimp Alfredo Pasta was a sure hit! I absolutely loved the hidden creamy shrimp in the pasta. I promise you this Alfredo Sauce will be the creamiest and best that you ever eat! You will make it again and again!

How do I Devein Shrimp?

Peeling and Deveining Shrimp can sound very intimidating, but can actually be very simple. Start with the bottom of the Shrimp where the legs are. Stretch the Shrimp to more of a straight position and lightly pull the shell outwards from the legs. After it’s peeled, to Devein the shrimp make a shallow slit down the back of the Shrimp where you see a black looking line. After the slit lightly stick your knife under the vein and gently pull out and simply wipe on a paper towel.

The best thing about meals like this one, is that it’s so family friendly. Kids have a heard time being picky with it because there isn’t anything not to love. It’s also a meal that you can dress up with some more elegant sides for a romantic dinner with someone special. Try sides like these Cheesy Cheddar Garlic Breadsticks and Roasted Lemon Parmesan Garlic Asparagus. Both of these sides are family friendly as well, and fit in to any occasion.

    Amazing!! My husband couldn’t stop talking about how delicious it was. I added my own seasoning to the shrimp and added an extra cup of heavy cream . It’s so good ! Thank you

  2. I would like to make this sounds great but I believe the carbs being only 3 can’t be correct with the pasta would you get back with me on this please

  3. In the Fettuccine Shrimp Alfredo i put in Heavy Whipping Cream (whipping Cream already whipped Up)?
    i notice in Fettuccine Alfredo you did not whip the Heavy Cream. In BC we only have Whipping Cream.
