Shrimp Fettuccine Alfredo

Shrimp fettuccine alfredo is one of the best tasting and low effort dishes. The recipe i give below yields an alfredo sauce that is a bit on the thicker side. If you want a thinner sauce, adding a touch or two more milk will thin out the sauce. This is a great meal for 3-4 people or you can eat one serving and freeze the rest for 2-3 more dinners.



Initial Preparation (5-10 minutes)

  1. Grate your Parmesan Cheese
  2. Peel your shrimp
