I love shrimp alfredo! My daughter loves the pasta but not the shrimp. My son loves it all! I use to buy the jar alfredo sauce (classico) and while it was good I felt that if I made it on my own…I could manipulate it the way I wanted too!
You can use penne pasta or linguine. I prefer penne pasta. I put that on first then cook my shrimp while the shrimp is cooking I start my sauce.
2 Tbsp. KRAFT Balsamic Vinaigrette Dressing
1/2 lb. uncooked deveined peeled medium shrimp
3 cloves garlic, minced
6 oz. (3/4 of 8-oz. pkg.) Cream Cheese
3/4 cup chicken broth (you can use fat free)
1/4 cup Grated Parmesan Cheese
1 Tbsp. chopped fresh parsley
Cook your pasta and shrimp how you want. You can even save time and let Publix go ahead and steam the shrimp for you. On a busy weeknight I would do that. Then all you have to do is cook the pasta and the sauce. Also, I buy the frozen broccoli and use that to put in with my pasta stirring it in when I add the penne.
Add cream cheese and broth in a deep frying pan (I use my wok) cook 3 to 5 min or until cream cheese is completely melted and mixture is well blended, stirring frequently. Stir in shrimp and 3 Tbsp. Parmesan. Season the sauce with salt, pepper, onion powder, garlic powder, or whatever you like to use for seasoning.
Drain your pasta and add the pasta to the sauce once it comes together. Mix your shrimp and add in the frozen broccoli which takes 6 minutes in the microwave.
Sprinkle as much or as little parmesan cheese on top and wallah you are done!
