Shrimp Alfredo Recipe

Alfredo dishes have always been among my favorites in Italian cuisine. I love chicken alfredo and Shrimp alfredo is no different, this recipe is delicious. The alfredo sauce is very simple and probably a bit healthier than most. You can adjust this recipe to your taste. I always like to add a lot of garlic and parmesan. This is a very easy dish and should be on the table in less than 1 hour. As you can probably see from the pictures, I used cooked shrimp instead of raw. Either one will work fine. If the shrimp is already pre-cooked I would recommend putting it in the sauce to simmer for a few seconds just before it’s done. You don’t want to overcook the shrimp.  Serve with garlic bread. Enjoy.
