Shrimp Alfredo



Shrimp Alfredo or any alfredo dish has always been my favorite among Italian recipes. This is a great pasta dish that’s filling and delicious. There’s nothing like tender sautéed shrimp in a Parmesan, Romano cream sauce.

This recipe is a little different and it’s definitely not traditional alfredo sauce. I just added a few more vegetables that aren’t normally in a traditional alfredo for added texture and flavor.

This Shrimp Alfredo recipe can of course be made with chicken or just plain. You can also grill the shrimp or chicken instead of frying. Enjoy.
